Marshfield Story Project


Marshfield Story Project brings together the residents of Marshfield – young, older and in between – to preserve Marshfield's community memory through intergenerational dialog, oral history and the digital preservation of select items from the Marshfield Historical Society. The complete collection of photos, artifacts and ephemera is housed in Old Schoolhouse Commons as part of Jaquith Public Library, but you may explore our digital collection here in Digital Vermont.

This project was made possible in part by the Institute of Museum and Library Services. IMLS grant number: LG-27-19-0240-19.
