Albany — has been recognized as a 2010 Top National Heritage Web site by online reference resource for its historical information access and engaging area preservation initiatives. This year’s recipients applied creative design, innovative web technology, and helpful resources to make finding information easier for heritage area visitors. The 2010 winners were selected for their dedication to preserving heritage area history and culture through outstanding web portals. “Our Web site is constantly developing and changing as we introduce new programs, seasonal events, and special attractions,” said Hudson River Valley Heritage Area senior planner, John Dennehey. “We avoid becoming ‘stale’ by keeping things changing and giving visitors a reason to keep exploring the Web site and, in turn, the Hudson River Valley.” The government awards editors hand-selected this year’s Top National Heritage Area Web site Award recipients by evaluating a variety of site features and functionality, including usability, historically accurate and engaging content, helpful travel resources for the area’s tourist destinations, and the inclusion of interactive features.
