A Word About Our Work...

Voices from the Valley collects, preserves, and presents voices and stories from South Central Minnesota. In addition to recording stories, we help individuals and groups gather their own stories which are then highlighted on this site.  The projects we feature take a variety of forms – from unedited oral histories to highly edited pieces designed for radio broadcast.
