Historic group takes leap into future

Imagine walking up to a historic building, taking out your smart phone, and scanning the QR code embedded on the building, or even on the brochure in your hand.

If that were in place today, and you were scanning the Sonoma City Hall, your screen would tell you that the cornerstone laying was done in 1906 and the building was completed in 1908. It might tell you the architectural style, the architect and the original cost.

QR stands for “quick response” and is represented by a barcode containing information.

This is the future, and that’s where the Sonoma League for Historic Preservation is headed. Changing with the times, the group is marching forward into the world of technology, expanding its vision to broaden opportunities for the public to learn about their history.

For the past 45 years they’ve focused on the past. But that’s only part of their mission.
