Oral and Video History Program
The Palisade Historical Society has an active oral and video history program. We record digital videos of people as they share memories of Palisade, their lives, and family stories. The written summaries of these interviews are below.
If you know someone who is interested in participating in our program, please contact us.
Also, we are grateful to the Marie Tipping Archives at the Museums of Western Colorado for sharing notes and transcriptions of Mesa County Oral Histories which were conducted in the 1970s and 1980s. Our summaries of several Palisade residents are listed below, organized by the Mesa County Oral History Project number. The Museum and the Mesa County Library are working on transferring the original cassette tapes to mp3 audio and putting them on the Library’s websites. When that occurs, we will add links to the Palisade oral histories.
