2003: Crafting Interpretive Plans

History Associates developed interpretive signage for the Third Winchester Battlefield site.

History Associates developed interpretive signage for the Third Winchester Battlefield site.

The company’s first interpretive planning project begins when the Civil War Trust (CWT) hires History Associates to lay out a historic battlefield park on the 222-acre Third Winchester site in the Shenandoah Valley.  After conducting thorough research, interpretive planners develop messaging, lay out miles of trails, and write content for interpretive waysides.  When implemented, the interpretive plan transforms the park into a heritage tourism destination for locals and Civil War tourists alike.  Its success leads to future collaborations with the CWT at battlefields near Chancellorsville, Fredericksburg, and Culpeper, Virginia.  New interpretive possibilities emerge with the advent of smartphones.  Between 2009 and 2015, History Associates works with the CWT to create virtual tours of nine Civil War battlefields using smartphone “Battle Apps.”
