The Madison Living History Project focuses on different community themes, such as:

  • Neighborhoods & places
  • People & groups
  • Moments & events

It's made up of several parts:

  • Oral histories & story shares
  • Community archiving events
  • Online access to stories, photos, publications, and ephemera

The Madison Living History Project was created in part to support the efforts of the City of Madison Planning Department’s Historic Preservation Plan. Initially the Madison Living History Project will prioritize place-based or neighborhood stories with a view to expand to additional topics and themes.

The Madison Living History Project is made possible with support from Marvin J. Levy and the Madison Public Library Foundation.
