Oral History Videos

As part of our mission to preserve the history and culture of Boston’s West End, we are recording and posting video interviews with original and former West Enders.

Our goal is to collect and share oral histories that chronicle personal accounts of this vibrant melting pot of a community for current and future generations to discover and appreciate.

Learn how you can take part and share your West End oral history.
