The Marion County Historical Society started collecting oral history interviews in the 1950s, often broadcasting the the interviews on local radio stations.  During the early 1990s under the leadership of Jackie Schulte, the society recorded and produced a number of interviews under the project name: Voices of the Valley.  Today the Willamette Heritage Center is continuing this tradition, both collecting new stories and digitizing the old.  Click on the icons below to listen to (or read) excerpts of some of these interviews and hear voices from Mid-Valley’s past.
