Some 40 patrons, many armed with smart phones, attended the unveiling of a Historic Walking Tour Mobile App at our fall reception. The app was produced by the GIS Section of the Prince George’s Planning Department based on the content of a current BHHC Walking Tour Brochure and historic markers. GIS Specialist Mussie Tewolde, who worked on the app, gave a demonstration.
We hope, in time, this app will become a comprehensive guide to all historic sites in Berwyn Heights. We plan to add more descriptions of homes, and invite anyone to contribute information they may have about historic homes, as well as interesting people or events connected with them.
Meanwhile check out the app online at https://tinyurl.com/HistoricBerwynHeights or scan the QR code.
