Oral History Project
The museum is involved in collecting oral histories. These interviews allow us to record local historical information that may only exist in memory. We collect recordings of the memories of people’s families, occupations, churches, schools, property, etc. in order to ensure that the stories and information are not lost to time.
If you would like to suggest a person to be interviewed or are interested in volunteering to help with this project, please call 817-645-0940 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
