Tell Us Your Story
Do you have a story to tell?
The best history teachers don’t always work in schools. Some are from all walks of life who actually witnessed an event or lived during an intriguing period of time and tell others about their experiences. Their stories are called oral histories.
The Plano Conservancy for Historic Preservation is looking for people who actually rode the Interurban Railway cars between 1908-1948 or lived in Plano before 1960 when it was still a rural farming community with a population of less than 5,000. What was it like before North Central Expressway reached Plano?
Perhaps you moved to the Plano area during the 1970s and 1980s when population growth exploded to more than 70,000 and businesses flocked to the area. How did everyday life change? What motivated you to move to Collin County?
To prepare for the future, children and others need to learn from the past. Your recollections are invaluable to them. If you would like to tell us your story, please contact us or call 972-941-2117 for more information or to set up an interview.
