Unearthing untold stories of our treasured High Line Canal
High Line Canal Conservancy seeks community participation to preserve social history through oral stories
The High Line Canal Conservancy is launching a new project focused on the social history of the High Line Canal as told by the people who have experienced its banks and created memories along its 71-miles over the past century. The project will help preserve the legacy of the historic Canal in an effort to continue the Conservancy’s mission to preserve, protect and enhance the Canal corridor in partnership with the public. The Conservancy, along with local media firm Circuit Media, is seeking all types of stories from the community. An early sampling has identified a rich and colorful variety of tales from rafting adventures to love on the trail. If you or someone you know would like to share a special experience or fond memory to contribute to the mosaic of histories on the High Line Canal, please visit highlinecanal.org/stories for more information or call 970-414-1766 to quickly tell your story via an audio message. Stories will be shared with the public and part of a special video exhibit to honor the Canal’s past. Be a part of High Line Canal lore – help us discover the untold stories of our treasured past.
