Oral History Project
- The Charlotte County History Services is looking to preserve the voices and memories of our area's past. We are currently seeking local individuals willing to tell their tales (or that of their families) about living in the Charlotte County area. These oral histories are recorded and preserved in our archive for generations to come. Help us to keep these stories alive; contact us to share today!
