Staunton-Parkersburg Turnpike Audio Recordings

Identifier: Series 14

Scope and Contents

This series consists of original minidisc and DAT interview recordings resulting from the Klines' 2007-2008 work for the Staunton-Parkersburg Turnpike Alliance.

Themes covered ranged from Native American life, Revolutionary and Civil Wars, gristmills, waterways, slavery and the Underground Railroad, coal mining, timbering and the oil and gas boom, as well as family and community life. Recording excerpts were originally used to produce a seven CD audio history highlighting life along the Turnpike.

Digital preservation of these interviews was made possible by a Recordings-At-Risk grant from the Council On Library and Information Resources (CLIR). The CLIR grant program is made possible by funding from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
