Capturing, Retaining, and Communicating the Stories of Who We Are. Tell Us Your Story!
Sponsored by the Keene Valley Library, Adirondack Community is a multi-year local history project that collects and organizes audio stories and related photographs from Town of Keene community members through this online platform to share our rich social and cultural history in New York State’s Adirondack Mountains.
Stories of yesterday and today, by young and old, will remind you why our town’s stories must be told!
Click the categories below to hear some exciting stories. More are continually added. We would love for you to share your story too.
Each month we highlight a story from one of the categories below. Bill Curtis repeats his eulogy for Brett Lawrence, delivered in July 2016. Brett personified the Adirondack and American spirit, as Bill recounts.
This project was initially made possible by a Humanities New York grant, with support from the National Endowment for the Humanities, additional support from the Glenn and Carol Pearsall Foundation, Northern New York Library Network, and supportive community members and powered by Memria.org. Continuing support beyond year one has been generously provided by community members. Any views, findings, conclusions, or recommendations expressed in this program do not necessarily represent those of the National Endowment for the Humanities or other sponsors.
