Growing Community Project

The "Growing Community" Project was made possible by a Common Heritage Grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities. The project focus aims to tell the history of the people who have lived and worked in Oceana County, Michigan for the first time. On Saturday, June 18, 2016 we held a History Harvest at the Hart Library and Hart City Hall. During the grant period of 2016, we collected oral histories and made digital copies of family photographs, news clippings, letters, journals, and other materials shared by community members.

Partners in this endeavor included GVSU's Kutsche Office of Local History, El Centro Hispano de Oceana, and the Oceana County Historical and Genealogical Society.

To learn more about this project, please contact El Centro Hispano de Oceana County or the Oceana County Historical and Genealogical Society.
