Digital Harrisburg

History Meets the Digital Age

Through technology, we make the city of Harrisburg come alive. Using both primary research and reflections by Messiah University students, we have partnered with Digital Harrisburg to create an interactive map of the 1900 and 1910 census records. You can find that map on the Digital Harrisburg website.

City Social: the digitization of the 1900 and 1910 census records

City Beautiful: photographs and information documenting Harrisburg's visionary project to clean and update the city in the 1900s


Students sit behind laptops that display images of historic maps.
