Creating Story Maps to Tell Your Preservation Story


In 2022, chance visitors to Camp Naco saw a chain-link fence surrounding a group of adobe buildings in varying states of decay. Site signage identified this ensemble as a post served by the Buffalo Soldiers, or segregated Black military, during the second decade of the twentieth century. Realizing that its important history should be shared, a team of faculty, students, volunteers, and professionals – funded by Arizona Humanities and the Arizona Preservation Foundation – created a story map to make the camp’s heritage universally accessible. In the process, Camp Naco became recognized for its national importance. This webinar presents the contributions of the collaborators to this award-winning story map. And those wonderful collaborators are Carlos Bazan, Crystal Carrancho, Helen Erickson, Gerald Lamb, Jenna Leveille, and Sarah McDowell.
