Oral Histories

An oral history gathers and preserves the recollections and memories of people, communities and participants in past events. We invite you to explore our rich collection of Edgewater residents who share their “stories” with you. Many of these histories are shorter versions of a lengthier interview. The original interview may be accessed as a written transcription. Enjoy discovering more about Edgewater!

We’ve also included under oral histories, recollections that never were oral, but written records of people’s memories of the community and their involvement in it.

The Oral Histories Menu at the top-left is ordered alphabetically within category. Please select a category to expand that category’s list, and then select a name to view that person’s oral history.
