NEW EXHIBIT @ the STATE MUSEUM   VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES
Changing America

May 1 - June 12, 2015

The national exhibit, Changing America, opens at the ND Heritage Center & State Museum in Bismarck on May 1!

One hundred years separate the Emancipation Proclamation and the March on Washington, yet they are profoundly linked together in a larger story of liberty and the American experience. Changing America was created as a traveling exhibit to commemorate these two pivotal achievements on their 150th and 50th anniversaries.

STATE ARCHIVES

An inventory of photographs belonging to people interviewed for the North Dakota Oral History Project is now online. The primary objective of the 1970s North Dakota Oral History Project was to conduct oral tape recorded interviews with North Dakotans who lived through the state's history and who could speak of this history from a first-hand basis. Interviewees were photographed at the time of their interviews. In addition, the project borrowed over 6,000 historical photographs which were copied and added to the State Historical Society's collection.
