Share Your History!

Oral History project promo

Special exhibit throughout the month of September!
The Old Colony History Museum’s latest special exhibition, Origin Stories, shows how Taunton and surrounding towns were founded back in the 17th century. Included in the exhibit are ways for visitors to share their own origin stories. OCHM wants to hear about where you are from, how far back in your family tree you can travel, and any other interesting chapters in your story.
In conjunction with this exhibit, throughout the month of September, the OCHM is gathering oral histories from the people, past and present, who have called the Old Colony home.
Appointments will be one hour in length and are available during the Museum’s regular hours, Tuesday through Saturday, 10 am-4 pm.
Call (508-822-1622) or send an email ( to schedule an appointment to record your Origin Stories!
