Remembering Benzie: Oral History Project

Share this Post


We’re currently collaborating with the Benzonia Public Library and Benzie Central Schools on Remembering Benzie: An Oral History Project.  The Library received an Institute of Museum and Library Services grant to create a teen internship program focusing on oral histories relating to veterans, families, agriculture, and artisanship.

Remembering Benzie: An Oral History Project will magnify and preserve one of our region’s greatest assets: our people and their histories.  Our researchers, archivists and genealogists provided primary source research training and the opportunity to explore the Benzie County Archives for information and imagery to support their individual oral history projects.
