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. In 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!
