Constructing the Past is a project that focuses on the Gettysburg College buildings Brua Hall, 227 Carlisle Street, and 250 Carlisle Street to show how buildings can reflect changes in a community. It shows how interconnected the college community is and the growth of the college. Information was gathered from Special Collections, Facilities, and Adams County Historical Society. This project uses a website hosted on WordPress and used the digital tools TimelineJS to highlight the history of the buildings and JuxtaposeJS to show the alterations made to them over time.


Final project for the 2019 Digital Scholarship Summer Fellowship at Musselman Library, Gettysburg College.
