Local History teaches us about our Community

Locations and objects in our community, sometimes everyday things such as names of towns and villages, names of streets, or more complex things like ways of life, or eras in a place’s past, can reflect the long heritage of past generations where we live. Few of us know the origins or histories behind our community, but learning the stories of a region’s past can change the way we think about the present and look to the future.
