About

Intermountain Histories is a free mobile app and website that provide scholarly information and interpretive stories of historic sites and events around the Intermountain West regions of Idaho, Wyoming, Montana, Nevada, Utah, Colorado, Arizona, and New Mexico. Discover the histories of the region’s peoples, places, institutions, events, cultures, and more. Using an interactive GPS-enabled map, you can take virtual or physical walking tours of historic sites. As your personal tour guide, Intermountain Histories provides historical information, photographs and images, documentary videos, audio interviews, oral histories, bibliographic citations, and other resources as you explore.

Hosted and managed by the Charles Redd Center for Western Studies at Brigham Young University, the collaborative project features carefully researched histories developed by students and professors in classroom settings from universities around the Intermountain West.

New content is created and published each semester. To receive notifications about new stories on the site, follow the project at http://www.facebook.com/IntermountainHistories or https://twitter.com/InterMtnHistory.
