Project Details

The Macon QR Project seeks to better inform visitors and residents of the history contained in downtown Macon in an interactive way. Every historical building in downtown Macon would have a QR code posted outside on the building. Visitors and residents could walk right up to a building, scan the QR code, and receive the past & current history of the building. This project not only seeks to better inform visitors and residents of downtown Macon's history, but also to create more civic pride, and increase support for preservation and revitalization efforts.
