Henderson Historical Society Stories

Oral History

HHS Applies for SOHA Grant 

Henderson District Public Libraries and Nevada State College assisted the Henderson Historical Society in applying to the Southwest Oral History Association for support to collect, preserve and share Henderson history. If approved, the grant would pay for a digital camera and accessories for recording the stories of old-timers whose memories will help preserve Henderson history. The project would also help teach the community how to use libraries and the Internet as tools for collecting photos, news articles, and stories that illustrate oral histories and reinforce our memories.

Anne Marie Hamilton-Brehm from Henderson Libraries, Peter La Chapelle and Kate Hahn from Nevada State College, and Rick Watson from the Henderson Historical Society assisted in writing the grant. They will also travel to Del Mar, California to participate in a panel discussion to share ideas from the grant at SOHA’s annual conference March 19-21, 2015.
