"We will be talking about this for generations . . ."
For 145 years Worcester Historical Museum has had the unique responsibility of collecting our city’s past. We know history and there is no doubt that we are living through a particularly significant historical event. The time to start preserving this history is NOW.
Worcester Historical Museum wants YOU to join in capturing the stories, images, and sounds of our community living through the COVID-19 pandemic. In collaboration with Digital Worcester and Worcester Polytechnic Institute, the Museum has created:
This is the place for you to upload any contribution – a photograph, a child’s drawing, a touching letter, a foreboding warning, or anything related to your experience during this pandemic. By sharing your story, it becomes our history – a chronicle of our city living apart but coming together to confront the extraordinary challenges, uncertainty, and hope of life in the time of COVID-19.
