A Rafael and Perugino fresco in Perugia, Italy. The cat I know less about.

I’m a casual journalist, history enthusiast, and wannabe archaeologist. I’ve only worked in one of those areas professionally, but pursue the other two in my spare time.

OAP’s goal is to bust down glass display cases and seek out the museums and physical places that are more than what they seem.  I visit open air museums (get it? “Open Air Pursuit”?), cultural landmarks, quirky museums, old houses, “forgotten” nooks…anything that challenges what we think a museum should be, and how physical spaces tell a whole different story. Can’t get that from a textbook!

The “Back in Time Zone Tour” focuses on historic places along the vertical regions of the USA that’s broken up by their time zone. I’ll also share travel stories and photography.

All photos, unless noted, are my own.

  1. Love it! “Open air” (or as I’ve always described it, “tangible history”) is how I fell into historic preservation too 🙂 I like your blog!
