Photo Safari #108 - U.S. National Historic Landmarks

Blog Blog

Thursday, Sep 12 2013 by

This week we’ll be going after U.S. National Historic Landmarks. All map services apply, GM, GE, SV, GB, LL, BEV, and YM but the preference is for good Street View thumbnails. Your mission is document as many U.S. National Historic Landmarks as possible. I was surprised that most are not actually in the database already. You can find a list of them in Wikipedia complete to links to the geolocation.

Post your finds to Street View – Safari Submission and another appropriate category. The safari ends at 0700 UTC on Wednesday, September 18. You should include the first few appropriate sentences from WikiPedia in your description and a link to the entry in your More Info link. Credit is given for a SV submission even if there is already a GM/GE, LL, BEV, or YM submission.

Good luck and happy hunting!
