DIY Audio Tour: the 1910 Historic Harris County Courthouse

Hello! I’m Margaret SternberghI am an Independent Interpretation Specialist. I work with clients like cultural organizations and museums to develop ways to make that content accessible and interesting to the everyday person or visitor.

At our WHA: Six Shooters presentation, I’ll be sharing a recent project I worked on that used a free, DIY audio tour platform, izi.travel, to transform personal interviews into an accessible location-based audio tour of the 1910 Historic Harris County Courthouse in Houston, Texas.

The project is a great example of how to use free technology to make the stories behind historic sites and locations available to the general public.

You can check out the audio tour here: izi.travel/1910courthouse
