Upcoming historical activities

Archive Out Loud Photo.jpg


The Archives Out Loud project is a series of staged readings of historical documents drawn from public collections. Each public reading explores a theme related to the history of the Town of Hearst, with primary sources at the heart of the presentations. Through the reading of minutes, petitions, letters and poems, newspaper clippings and other period documents, we explore adversity (August 3 presentation) and forestry activity (August 8 dinner show).
