Voices from the Valley

Page address:

Voices from the Valley is a new and evolving project with a simple goal – to collect, preserve, and present the voices and stories of South Central Minnesota. On our website you'll find...

  • A growing collection of audio recordings documenting our region's past and present
  • Insights into how you can collect stories from family, friends, and others in your community
  • Links to some of the best online sites featuring thoughts and stories from "everyday" people around the world
  • Guidelines for participating in a Voices from the Valley Project

We hope you find something in the work presented here. We also hope you'll get involved – from sharing your story to proposing a project.
