PDX Social History Guide App Launch
Available in the Itunes store.
Mark your calendars for the public release of the app-version of the PDX Social History Guide app. The app will feature location-based stories reflecting the multicultural history of downtown Portland.
The initial app will feature:
- Architect Bill Hart on the Goldenwest Hotel and African American history
- Author Polina Olsen on South Portland and Jewish history
- Historian Janice Dilg on women’s suffrage in Oregon
- Professor Reiko Hillyer on Old Town/ Chinatown
- Historian Doug Kenck-Crispin on skid row and logger history in Old Town
- Author Mike Munk on worker’s history
- George Nicola on gay history on SW Stark Street
- Professor Anne Mussey on lesbian history in Old Town
- Consultant Ed Edmo on Native American history in Oregon
This project was produced with the generous support of Oregon Arts Commission, Travel Portland and our Kickstarter backers.
PDX Social History has been made possible only by the help and dedication of a team of volunteers. We would like to make this app accessible to all, but we need your support to keep this project open and free. Your support will enable us to only improve what we’ve started, but also to expand this project and work on additional stories. Pledge to our Kickstarter campaign, or make either a one-time gift or recurring monthly installments using Network for Good, by clicking here.
