The Oakley Cabin, a historic site in Montgomery County, Maryland, has been a part of the community since the 1800s. However, starting in June, visitors will find something new at this location. Montgomery Connects’ program director, Mitsuko Herrera, expressed excitement about the groundbreaking changes happening at the Oakley Cabin.

A Frederick company was recently named the Emerging Tech Company of the Year, and they have partnered with the Oakley Cabin African American Museum and Park in Olney to introduce augmented reality (AR) technology to enhance the visitor experience. Gail M. Roper, the TEBS Department Director and Montgomery County CIO, highlighted the significance of integrating AR technologies into community spaces.

The use of AR at the Oakley Cabin represents a modern approach to historical education and engagement. The addition of AR historical experiences is expected to create a new level of interactive learning for visitors. For more information on this exciting development, visit the provided link.
