Studying local history:
History has little meaning unless it resonates with our daily lives
Anything is bearable if you can make a story out of it.
--N. Scott Momaday
Seeing our challenges as part of a continuum gives them meaning and
gives us hope.
The past does not repeat itself, but it rhymes.
Our local history echoes that of the larger culture;
differences and similarities between then to now are what imbue
History is filled with the sound of silken slippers going
downstairs and wooden shoes coming up.
The uniqueness of a particular scene and time is what brings the past to life.
