Since 2003 the Society’s Oral History group, Page & Stage, has produced soft cover volumes of county oral histories consisting of photographs and interviews with people whose lives and experiences provide first person narratives of County life. Our newest group, History Speaks, has local storytellers telling stories on the County’s history. Finally, the Society collaborates with other organizations to help promote the County’s history through various programs or projects of interest.
The Society produces a quarterly newsletter and PDF copies are available for viewing. In addition, news media stories related to the Society are listed. Although the Society does not provide research services to the public, volunteers have made their research available.
Several videos of Society events are listed and available for viewing through the OCHS YouTube channel. From a virtual tour of the Wolcott Keeper’s House to lectures on various subjects of interest, the Society’s YouTube channel will provide hours of entertainment.
