Everyone's History

Discover Everyone’s History, an ongoing exploration of life in New England. Find out about early aviation, African American tourist destinations, and how fried clams became a favorite summertime treat. Hear the voices of workers in a blue jeans factory, and see photos taken by Boston Public Schools students.

Historic New England partners with communities and organizations throughout the region to collect and share Everyone's History.

Everyone’s History projects include award-winning documentary films, interviews, online exhibitions, photo galleries, and more.

Is there an aspect of life in New England you think should be preserved and shared with future generations? Tell us about it.
