Public History Course Completes Website on Neilson’s Department Store

Students in Professor Alexandra Lindgren-Gibson‘s winter intersession course on “Public History from Colonial Williamsburg to Drunk History,” spent the past two weeks investigating and documenting the history of an Oxford landmark, Neilson’s Department Store.

Using the records related to Neilson’s Department Store at the Archives & Special Collections at the UM Library, they created an online exhibit that presents their findings.
