Historical Georgia: There's An App For That

Historical Georgia: There's An App For That

This season on Georgia Traveler I've been taking you to historical sites throughout the state. While Civil War-era sites are getting the most attention right now because this year is the 150th anniversary, Georgians can visit places in their backyards from all eras. Now, a new iPhone application allows you to tour Georgia historical sites with more ease.

The Georgia Historical Society unveiled the app Wednesday. When you open it up anywhere in Georgia, it recognizes where you are. It then gives you directions to nearby historical markers along with photos and details about the site.

You can also search sites by keyword and develop tour routes of multiple places. Savannah’s Smack Dab Studios developed the software.
