PBS invites you to be a history detective

History Detectives is a prime-time PBS series about the discovery, documentation and preservation of historic American buildings and artifacts. The format of the program is an investigation of a question posed by an individual who is interested in learning the history behind an artifact or location and its possible historical significance.

The staff of Lion Televison, which produces the series, is currently seeking story submissions from all over the country regarding American buildings or artifacts that may be historically or culturally significant. If you, or someone you know, have an object or building that may have played a key part in American history, they want to know about your mystery.

The most promising ideas are historically significant, and are still unsolved. The best objects belong to people who may not have a research background, but are enthusiastic about American history.
