KWBU: McLennan History in the Palm of Your Hand

May 29, 2015
AUDIO LINK INCLUDED: Stephen Sloan, Ph.D., director of Baylor’s Institute for Oral History, is interviewed for this story about the new Waco History app, which pinpoints historical locations throughout McLennan County and provides stories about the various locations. The creation of the app was spearheaded by Baylor’s Institute for Oral History and The Texas Collection. The impetus behind the app, Sloan said, is the lack of an area museum that specifically covers Waco and McLennan County history as its theme. The Waco History app launched earlier this spring and currently contains about 70 historic sites, including locations that no longer exist but are still important to Waco history.
