Describe your website.

Like historical societies and their museums, which strive to identify, document, and collect historic records and artifacts, this site exists to do a similar job of identifying and highlighting repositories of regional history that are particular to the Southeast Chicago section of the Calumet Region, as well as spotlighting existing local sites that are, in themselves, historically important, although not necessarily recognized widely as such.

Who is the target audience for your website?

This site is for historians, amateur and professional; for artists and lovers of the arts; for residents of northwest Indiana, southeast Chicago, and the "Calumet" region; regardless of their ages.

What is the advantage of your website over others?

To my knowledge, our site does not have any competitors, but it does link to many sites that share some of the same interests.

Tell us a story about this website.

The website, begun new, has not had a lot of time to develop such anecdotes. However, on the day after its first post on the Internet, it gained this comment: "In one paragraph, you effortlessly move from Native Americans to farming, you are one amazing writer Kevin!"

Why did you use this Sandvox design?

The Sandvox design I chose suits my way of working with the kind of information that I am using, and "feels" right for me. The content is primary. I am not interested in lots of moving toys, gimmicks, and other distractions.
