Help Save Stories That Matter!



There is something special about listening to the voice of someone from the past, someone sharing their personal experiences from a time long ago. These voices evoke powerful emotions and make events, places, and moments in our collective history come alive.


In 2019, Montgomery History will celebrate its 75th anniversary. Many programs are being planned to commemorate this milestone, including the unique opportunity to record oral histories of a cross-section of people who lived in Montgomery County 75 years ago. Experienced oral historians will conduct the interviews and prepare digital recordings and transcriptions, pieces that will be available in perpetuity, ensuring that these unique and amazing stories are never lost. Your donation will make history more accessible and more real, for generations to come.   


Our goal for this oral history project is $5,000. Your gift of any size will make an enormous difference. And best of all, online gifts will be matched dollar-for dollar, effectively doubling the impact of your donation. (Please note that donations by cash or check will not be matched.)


Like you, we know that preserving Montgomery County’s history is about capturing the human element that makes the past come alive. We are so grateful that you value our history as we do, and we hope we can count on your support. Thank you again!
