Dull. Insignificant. Small. Unimportant. Isolated.
Look up the word "podunk" in a dictionary and you'll find these or similar words to describe a stereotyped community where nothing worthwhile is happening. But, residents of the real Podunks (yes, there really are some towns by that name in the United States), might take exception.
The folks at the ePodunk web site definitely have a different take on the matter. Touting a strong belief in "the power of place," they've created a virtual community where you can enjoy in-depth information on 46,000 American communities.
This is not a "longitude & latitude, population" type of site. It's chock full of links to visuals of vintage Americana, from old postcards to antique photos uploaded by real people from real families.
It's a clever site that gives family history enthusiasts a new window into the past.
