The Greenwich Library Oral History Project collection consists of over 1,000 interviews about the history of Greenwich, Connecticut.
The Oral History Project has interviewed more than a thousand people who have lived and worked in Greenwich. They tell stories that will keep you enthralled. These are personal histories and observations that date back to the turn of the previous century, as told by the people who were actually there (here). Learn about how life used to be, or get the inside story about major events (e.g., the United Nations wanted to settle here!). Read about the evolution from one-room schoolhouses in different neighborhoods to the 3000-student high school on the Post Road. So much history, so many changes in Greenwich over the decades.
All transcribed interviews are available to the general public on the main floor of the library, in the Local History reference section.
