The earliest effort to preserve Berlin's rich history was accomplished by Bailey K. Davis in his book, Traditions and Recollections of Berlin, N.H. It was first published in 1897 in a local newspaper called the Berlin Independent and, according to former Berlin historian Louville Paine, was later put into book form by his granddaughter in the 1920s. This was how the history of Berlin was passed down to generation to generation since (i.e., book form). This site was created to update the way the history of Berlin was transmitted to people by making it adaptable to 21st century technology. An idea like this, was however, already accomplished by Shawn Murphy and Paul "Poof" Tardiff, which they began in 2001. In 2007, for one reason or another, the du-nord site was terminated from the Web, thus there was no website dedicated to the history of Berlin.
On February 21st of 2011, this website was created. Renovations and updates to the site are always taking place, so that both current and former "Berlinites" can easily access historical information about Berlin whenever they want, free of charge.
