Historians have the unique challenge of making history come alive through the interpretation of compelling stories. Whether through an oral history, the written word or displaying an artifact, we meet this challenge by packaging information in a new and exciting form. This fall, the Lakeside Heritage Society invites you to join historians, museum professionals, librarians and students as we share innovative methods used for telling our unique stories. Join us on the shores of Lake Erie from Oct. 26-28 as we explore novel ways to present our research, engage with audiences and promote our stories!  Registration required.
