Project Index

Since 2002 we have completed 20 projects, interviewed more than 90 people and compiled more than 1000 pages of archival material for the project.  Interviews ranged in length from 45 minutes to an hour and full transcriptions are part of each project.  Our most recent project focused on the impact of COVID-19 on the community of Black River Falls over the last two years.  Thanks for the visit!
