You will find a collection of oral history recordings done for the Chatham Historical Society, beginning in the 1950s. The early predecessors had the forethought to travel around Chatham and Cape Cod collecting histories and memories from various people who experienced “Old Chatham” first hand. Through these audio recordings, we are transported in time and relive days gone by. Enjoy sitting and listening to conversations with fishermen, artists, doctors, volunteers, and so many others as they tell you about our history.

Browse the collection of recordings, paired with their written transcriptions, and see if any person or topic interests you!
