Cherry Hill Oral History Project

The Cherry Hill Oral History Project aims to bring together 5th grade students of Arundel Elementary with Towson University students to employ information literacy and research skills in order to understand how the Cherry Hill neighborhood was created, the historical significance of the neighborhood, and what it was like in years past. Students record interviews with elders of the Cherry Hill community for the creation of an oral history collection for the neighborhood and an increased understanding of our shared history.
