Oral Histories:  We have over a dozen tapes that have been transcribed.  In the 1970s Tom Purdy, and others, recorded interviews with a variety of North Salem residents, including Ruth Keeler, Dan and Louise McKeon, Jane Grant Purdy deMcCarty, Dorothy Cyr and others. We are pleased to post these interviews as they become available.  Please scroll down to the pdf attachments.  

Oral Histories Come Alive:  Our latest project is to bring to you the Audio of the actual interviews.  And, as a bonus, we hope to be adding photos to help you visualize the speakers, properties, people, places and events being discussed.  Our first should be ready this spring, 2021.  Please stay tuned.
