Lee County Oral History Project

This project consists of recorded “fireside chat” sessions at the Lee County Public Library. Each Tuesday in April, attendees will sit around the fireplace and tell stories about what it was like to grow up in Lee County. Topics to discuss include: farming, town, life, industry, government, religion, technology and more. The Department of Sociology at Eastern Kentucky University will use keyword technology to catalogue these valuable stories and preserve them for the future. They will also be available online to the general public for genealogy research, classroom history enhancement or just for entertainment. If you can’t attend the sessions, hand-held recording devices will be available for checkout through the library. You can record up to ten hours on these devices.

Tuesdays at 6pm, starting April 4th, 2017
