KINGSTON — Kingston Historical Museum invites you to a discussion about the new Kingston History book on Sat., November 6, at 1:00 p.m. Bring your questions, corrections and your own Kingston memories to share.
Most of the material that appears in the book came from the Museum collection due to the generous donations of many Kingstonians and their families. Please consider donating photographs, newspaper articles, written stories and other materials which have a Kingston connection. They are looking for material that expanded upon the topics covered in the new history but also new areas. Museum volunteers will collect your donations at the end of the event. The volunteers can also schedule a time with you to collect items at a later date. They can set up an appointment to scan your items at the Museum and return the originals to you.
The Oral History Project team is currently scheduling interviews with individuals to document their memories and stories. We are very excited that several people have come forward to be interviewed. Buster Durant recently shared his memories of the Kingston Drum and Bugle Corp. Several people have agreed to provide information about their family farms in Kingston. You remember people, places, organizations, and events that made Kingston special to you. Please consider signing up to be interviewed. The team has collected over sixty interviews to date.
