Histories of the National Mall

Histories of the National Mall is a digital public history project developed by the Roy Rosenzweig Center for History and New Media at George Mason University, and generously funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities.

This guide details each phase of creating Histories of the National Mall, mallhistory.org, including planning, interpretative approach, user experience and design, testing, and outreach efforts of the project team.

“Building Histories of the National Mall: A Guide to Creating a Digital Public History Project” is co-authored by Sheila Brennan and Sharon Leon, together with Megan Brett, Jannelle Legg, Michael O’Malley, Spencer Roberts, and Jim Safley (October 2015).
