Crowdsourcing Public History

Check this out... it's an historic pub crawl, where the locations of the historic pubs (tavern sites 100 years old or more) are provided by site visitors. There is an interactive map, and locations of taverns still serving, still standing, and gone forever are all welcome. A very cool idea! The same folks are also mapping one-room schoolhouses using the same system.

The link above goes to the historic pub crawl website; the image below is of the map. I don't like all the crud overlying the map itself, but once you get past it, pretty cool!
