One Place Study
Hal Harold Miller made reference to Wikipedia's "One Place Study" article over at Facebook and after reading Hal's post and the Wikipedia article, I realized that Lowville Long Ago qualifies as an American version of a One Place Study.
In case you don't know, I've been assisting Hal and the great group of people he's put together with the Albany Hilltowns website. Plus Hal's already been managing The Berne Historical Project which actually shows up as an external link for the Wikipedia article. Both of these projects also meet the criteria of a One Place Study.
One topic that the Wikipedia article did not cover was that of "relationships" between the residents of a specific location. Wikipedia did list various motivations to have a One Place Study assembled but investigating the way in which the citizens of that location interacted was not one of them.
