Audio: Work continues on historic downtown Kosciusko mapping project/walking tour


Work is continuing on a project that would turn downtown Kosciusko into an interactive history lesson.

The project includes creating a map of historic downtown Kosciusko that would be used as the basis for a walking audio tour.

That tour would follow the original Natchez Trace and would also highlight several other historic locations downtown.

The maps, which would be available at the Visitor’s Center, City Hall, and the Kosciusko-Attala Partnership, contain QR codes on the back that when scanned, would bring up an audio file or would give information about that site.

The entire project is the work of Bad Hoss Maps, a New Mexico based company that creates historical maps for books, museums, and for government agencies such as the National Park Service, U.S. Forestry Service, the Department of Indian Affairs.

Representatives from the company are due back in Kosciusko at the beginning of May to finish their work on mapping the downtown area.
