Erie Places, Erie Stories exhibit available online

EriePlacesErieStoriesErie Places, Erie Stories was a collaboration of the Mercyhurst University Public History program, the Erie Nonprofit Partnership, Preservation Erie, Center City Arts/Bloom Collaborative, and other partners throughout the city. The project engaged Mercyhurst students throughout fall 2013 in both producing photographs of a few of Erie’s great buildings and landscapes, and conducting oral history interviews with individuals who have some connection to those places. Students in Dr. Chris Magoc’s Introduction to Public History class interviewed residents, church parishioners, and business owners with deep and lasting attachments to some of the special places in the greater Erie area.

If you missed seeing the Erie Places, Erie Stories exhibit at Bloom Collaborative in December, or Erie City Hall in January/February, you can experience it online at http://www.mercyhurst.edu/academics/undergraduate/history/erie%20places
