We’re Making History Together
As the repository for High Point history, we want to preserve pieces of this historic moment in time, so that generations from now High Pointers will understand what this period was like, and what we were feeling, thinking, seeing, and doing when everything seemed to shut-down. In order to represent the full range of experiences in our community, we need your help. We invite you to participate in the High Point COVID-19 Experience Project. Read on for details below. Thank you for your help as we make history together!
Please join our Facebook Group and share your stories. The focus of the group is the greater High Point community and our COVID-19 experiences. Please share your stories, pictures, and videos with us to help inspire and encourage each other and leave a record for future High Pointers.
We are collecting oral histories from High Pointers during this pandemic to tell our community’s story in real time and save them for future research. Please contact us if you are interested in being interviewed or suggest someone we should interview.
We want to add items to our collection to document the variety of ways High Pointers are experiencing, reacting, and adapting to this extraordinary time. We are looking for things that represent how we continue to work, communicate, learn, teach, play, celebrate, worship and mourn during this pandemic. If you have something you want to contribute, please click here and share your contact information so we can follow up with you.
Share at Home
Many families are spending more time at home together than usual right now. You may want to talk with each other about how you are feeling and reacting to this historic event. There are many ways you can record your experience for future generations of your own family. Take photographs, fill out the time capsule workbook, journal, create pieces of art, dance, do anything to express yourself.
