Make History with Us
At the Historical Society of Cheshire County, we welcome YOU to participate in the process of making local history accessible and fresh. Learn about our crowdsourcing projects. Invite your students to participate.
The Historical Society’s “Citizen Archivist Initiative” encourages members of the general public to help transcribe historical documents from its archives in order to make them more accessible for research, publication, exhibition, and educational programming.
Students don’t just learn about history, with the Historical Society’s Student Archivist initiative, they transcribe diaries and letters of local individuals in the classroom to make that history come alive.
