NEW – On Thursday, October 18 at 5:30 pm, you’re invited to the opening reception of our newest exhibit, “Clark County Stories: How We Came To This Place.” Since the beginning of the year, area residents and neighbors have shared their migration and family stories through oral history interviews, community conversations, memoirs, poetry, and objects. All in an effort to get to know each other and understand our shared history better.
The series tagline “How We Came to this Place” is both literal and historical, as we ask…How has Clark County become the way it is today?
Through these storytelling topics we are trying to capture glimpses of identity across time, place, and culture.
We’d like to thank our series sponsors and coordinators:
CCHM, Fort Vancouver Regional Library District, Humanities Washington “Washington Stories” Grant, Peabody’s College of Arts and Sciences Meyer Distinguished Professor Fellowship, Washington State University Vancouver, and Washington State University History Department’s Pettyjohn Fund.
Dr. Sue Peabody, a Historian and Meyer Distinguished Professor of History at WSUV, and Dr. Donna Sinclair, Public Historian and Adjunct Professor of History at WSUV, and Brad Richardson, the museum’s executive director and historian.
