Mount Washington's Oral History Project

Oral Histories are about who we are, where we live, where we’ve been and what we’ve done, kind of a timeline of our lives. When we talk with another person or a group of friends we are sharing a piece of our own histories.
Getting ones life story together can be a daunting task to say the least, so the MWHS with the aid and assistance of knowledgeable people has started a program called the Oral History Project. The process involves conducting an interview within a comfortable environment with town folk willing to tell their stories before a videographer and an interviewer.

To date we have conducted 6 interviews with the following town folk: Peg Whitbeck, Nancy Wright, Wally Crowell, Anne and Cope Garrett, and The Reverend Philip Newell. Our goal is to interview as many people in town as are willing. We will begin the interview process again in the spring of 2018.

If you would like to contribute historical images or content to our archives, please contact a board member, Town Hall, or email them to us.
