Ohio Humanities Awarded NEH Grant for Tourism Website

Our Ohio Humanities SeeOhioFirst.org website is about to expand thanks to a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities. The award of $100,000 from the NEH Division of Public Programs will be used to redesign the Ohio Humanities’ heritage tourism website, adding interpretive content supported by a custom-designed web infrastructure.

The project will engage scholars, community stakeholders, and technicians to present stories of Ohio’s heritage and culture. img-barnIn making the award, the National Endowment commended the project for showcasing the humanities to stimulate the educational potential of travel. SeeOhioFirst.org was first launched in 2012 as a repository for The New Ohio Guide, a series of driving tours narrated by humanities professionals.  

Created under a grant from the Ohio Department of Transportation, The New Ohio Guide has served as a template for additional tours of cultural heritage sites. >>> Click Here to Learn More!
