Thoreau Farm Goes Mobile

3 Jul

Henry David Thoreau, as gifted as he was, certainly never expected his family farm to be the base for a smartphone app. The farm now has a full mobile tour that teaches visitors about the property, Thoreau and his family.

Being almost a century older than Thoreau himself, the farm is full of history and stories that are now easily accessible to visitors. The app also features historic pictures of the farm, giving an accurate representation of how it has changed over the years.  We’re impressed with how much has stayed the same (and a mobile guide is a great way to leave the property itself undisturbed)!
