The history and community of Grabs, Switzerland were largely shaped by the millstream that flows through the small town. The Grabser Mühlbach association has strived to preserve the historical and communal significance of the mills through its museum. The self-guided tour of the privately owned mills could be improved to provide more access of information for visitors. The project investigated and developed features, such as interactive maps, links to videos of the mill interiors and personal stories of the mills, and a model website with an easily usable layout, that could enhance information accessibility. These deliverables and more, recorded in the form of a manual, will help the Grabser Mühlbach association share history with future generations.
