Neighborhood and Community programs explored and celebrated the histories of Boston's neighborhoods and their residents. This program area consisted of neighborhood exhibits, booklets by residents, visible projects, and local preservation programs. This program included a collection of oral histories. Keep an eye out: this summer we will be posting a weekly series of posts highlighting some of these oral histories!

My name is Colleen Nugent and I am a History PhD student at Northeastern University, completing my fieldwork at the Boston City Archives. I grew up right outside of Boston, in Bedford. I am very excited to go through these oral histories and get an understanding of the City from the perspective of people who lived in it during the 20th century. Please join me in uncovering more about Boston's history from the mouthes of its residents
