Preserving the Old West: The Miner's Story Project
The Miners’ Story Project collects, preserves and shares stories about life in the mines and mining communities in the Southwest US.
These stories are captured on high quality digital audio recordings, to enrich and enliven the exhibits at the University of Arizona’s Mineral Museum. Recording sessions are held in a mobile “Story Trailer,” which will visit towns around Arizona and New Mexico.
These stories will live for generations to come and will help young people (and even the young at heart!) learn about the history and importance of mining in Arizona and New Mexico.
