Check Out Clio

When planning family outings, do you try to include visits to museums, historical sites or points of interest? If so, there's an app to help you choose where to visit: Clio. Clio is a mobile app and web site to guide users to thousands of historical and cultural sites in the United States.

 Last week, the Nemaha County Historical Society was approved to add entries to Clio. As an initial project, we have added six Seneca sites to Clio:

  • Hand Dug Well
  • Nemaha County Historical Society
  • Temple of Honor Military Museum
  • Seneca Post Office
  • Seneca Free Library
  • Seneca Fire Department Museum
Each of these sites as well as most of the sites on Clio include photos and links to further information. The written information about each site was taken from the walking tour posters, brochures and even a post card. (Yes, a bibliography of the sources used is at the bottom of each entry.) 

There are a lot more places in Nemaha county deserving an entry on Clio. However, we will need the communities help to gather the photos, links and source material. (Note: This would make a great senior project.)

Check us out on Clio!
