Fort Frederica is going digital through enhancement of Visitor Center displays during its recent renovation.  The park placed a mid-sized wall mounted TV in the entrance to the Visitor center to provide information on programs and special events, information on other parks, and other information as needed.  The staff also updated three interactive touch screen kiosks that enhance existing displays on 18th century Military Life, Archeology at Frederica, and one on the life of Frederic'a founder James Edward Oglethorpe.  Lastly digital photo frames were added into display cases featuring the stories of the diversity of people who lived at Frederica.  These photo frames have rotating images that enhance the history behind the artifacts in these cases.
