Ivy Talks: Albemarle’s History Story Mapping


Erik Irtenkauf

Sunday, April 8, 2018 | 2:00pm - 3:30pm

Local Geographic Information Systems analyst, Erik Irtenkauf, will present the history of Albemarle County, specifically Ivy Creek Natural Area and the Hollymead vicinity using story maps. Story maps create an interpretative narrative of the history of these areas using digital maps, texts, photos and other records. We will explore the Carr-Greer families as well as other earlier landowners who shaped ICNA and learn how the presence of early inhabitants can still be seen today and the transformation from quiet rural farms to the bustling neighborhoods and commercial centers of today.
