The Stories You Won't Find Anywhere Else!
We are capturing the compelling stories that express not only the unique history and character, but also the strength and depth of the social fabric of the Salisbury Beach community.
On this site we'll feature video segments from our Oral History interviews and keep you updated about the project. Take a look!
Our first interview! Recorded on March 23, 2016 - Click on the video above to watch a few clips from Pat's interview.
In an oral history project, the “experts” are the actual members of a community who lived the event or a specific time in history. The narrator (interviewee) recalls an event for an interviewer who records the recollections and creates a historical record.
We do pre-interviews to determine the most appropriate "Narrators" to interview on video. Then we schedule an on-camera opportunity to record Salisbury Beach stories.
Out-of-the-ordinary stories that no one else has told and very few of us have heard - the stories that best describe the unique social history of the community of Salisbury Beach.
Initial funding has come from the Salisbury Cultural Council and individual donors. But we need your help. Your financial donation of any amount will help us continue the project.
