OurHistoryMuseum is a crowdsourced and virtual history museum that anyone can contribute to. We are prototyping with our hometown first — Alexandria, Virginia. The app will be available nationally in early 2022. In the meantime, sign up for our blog or follow OHM on social media (both at the bottom of this page) to keep updated.

Our mission is to save history — it's preservation via digitization. We hope to capture images of old postcards, transcribe old letters, and make all photographs available for browsing. Our entire museum is virtual. Our app will be available for download sometime in the summer of 2021. We are producing a prototype, and our first test market will be Alexandria Virginia, our hometown. But this is just a start.
