Boston Public Library

Grove Hall Memory Project

The Grove Hall Memory Project was an effort by the Grove Hall Branch of the Boston Public Library to capture stories and images from the lives of Roxbury residents and to explore the role of Roxbury in twentieth-century Boston. The goal of the project was to provide audio/visual "snapshots" of neighborhood life through the years, to tell the history of the neighborhood through the eyes of the people who live there, and to preserve those stories for future generations. Materials include letters, photographs, newspaper clippings, and oral-history interviews with full transcriptions.
