With a generous gift from the North Creek Calendar Committee, Johnsburg Historical Society is launching its first website. The site can be viewed at: johnsburghistoricalsociety.com.
North Creek’s Nate Pelton of Grateful Design Web Design and Development is designer of the website. Included are navigation items Home, Membership, Collections, Living History and Newsletter. Seven rotating historic photos grace the Home Page in a moving ribbon across the top. These photos will be replaced periodically. The Membership Page contains an option for printing a membership form.
A top priority for JHS is to make each of the Living History interviews listed accessible to the public. Pending the Society’s resolution of some pesky technological issues, soon a visitor to the site will be able to select an interview which will be directed to another site, archive,org where all JHS interviews will be stored electronically. The selected interview then can be viewed or audited by the visitor.
Latest interviews are Bill Bibby at the North Creek Railroad Depot on Oct. 9 and Mary Ann Leigh Richards (Fuzzy) at the home of her sister Wanda Armstrong in Riparius on Oct. 10.
This leap into the modern digital age by JHS keeps this small local organization on a level with much larger historical societies and museums. Proceeds from the 2013 North Creek Calendar sales funded not only this project but also five other local non-profit organizational projects. The Calendar Committee should take a bow for its vision in raising the quality of life for Town of Johnsburg residents.
