Follow Friday: North Haven Historical Society

   A big shout out to the North Haven Historical Society for their efforts in developing a new website. Set up as a blog, the website features membership information and a lot more. "Alternatives to Demolition" encourages owners to save their historic homes. "Available Publications" lists several books that can be purchased from the Society, as well as a few that can be accessed online. "Past Programs" allows you to preview slideshows from recent events - even if you missed the event. "What's New in Preservation" chronicles the Society's efforts to save town buildings. "Life in Early North Haven" provides a nice overview of lighting.
    The site is evolving to cover three separate topics - the Society, historic preservation, and history - and honestly, I'd love to see them separated a little more clearly. I takes me a second to jump back and forth. Also, consider adding the word "Connecticut" to your title so that it shows up a little more easily in websearches. Beyond that, I'm impressed. Content is detailed and well written. A regular effort is being made to update the site. It's accessible.  Great job!
