Resident Interviews

Voices of the Valley

In 1997, a group of Anderson Valley Jr./Sr. High students and their teacher created Voices of the Valley. What began as a small project involving a handful of students and community elders, blossomed into a well-articulated part of the community involving hundreds of students and scores of community members. Through this Oral History project, they conducted interviews of many community members. Read the interviews.
