Upper Valley Oral History Project

Project Description

Three students from the Upper Valley Haven’s after school program participated in a week-long oral history workshop. First, students interviewed five seniors at Bugbee Sr. Center about places in the Upper Valley that have changed over time. Next, students visited those places to take photographs documenting how the places look today. Then, students worked in the Hartford Historical Society’s photo archives to find old photographs of those same places.  The last step was to storyboard how the project would be put together. The final film was screened for a packed house at Bugbee Senior Center.
