Another Way to Explore History!

In celebration of the blog reaching 15,000 views, we would like to announce that Midway Village Museum is participating in Historypin!

What is Historypin?  This website allows people to share historical images of places  in order to build a larger story of the history of communities all over the world!  By going to http://www.historypin.com/ and searching for Rockford, IL (or any location you desire!) you will be able to see what its past streets and buildings looked like, as well as learn about personal stories of the locals.
