“Save Our Voices”


Montgomery History’s 2023 spring appeal “Save Our Voices” brought our community together to preserve MH’s invaluable collection of oral histories. With your support, we converted over 200 hours of oral history interviews into digital audio files, from 168 cassette tapes and 36 reels representing 94 voices from Montgomery County’s past! These histories are offered online in our Oral History Collection.

In the spring of 2024, “Save Our Voices” continues! Our goal is to create a representative, first-person record of local history for future generations by creating new oral histories from our contemporaries. The voices we record will not be altered or edited in any manner. The narrators will—for the very first time—tell their own stories as they wish it to be told. Your investment is giving voice to the past and preserving these priceless stories for future generations. Thanks to your recommendations, we will be interviewing not just luminaries but people from a broad cross-section of the community whose life experiences tell the story of our home.
