Northwest Community Television is researching the histories of the nine communities it serves in the northwest metropolitan area of Minneapolis, Minnesota. A nine-part documentary series will be produced which will include interviews of historians and community members, historic photographs, and living history reenactments. The project will attempt to cover a time period from territorial settlement to the present time.
Our Town’s Story will be a collection of stories that will highlight the evolution of each city through six areas of focus: events, people, industry, agriculture, education, and government. We hope these documentaries will provide entertaining programming for our viewers, have lasting value, and can be used to educate students, citizens, and businesses about the history of the place they call home.
Our production team is actively looking for community members who can contribute knowledge, interviews, or photographs to this project.
• People with firsthand knowledge of historical events.
• People with stories about relatives, friends or events of historical value.
• People with photographs and/or artifacts of local significance.
This project will be a collaborative effort with historical societies and community leaders from each of the nine cities served by Northwest Community Television. Those nine communities are Brooklyn Center, Brooklyn Park, Crystal, Golden Valley, Maple Grove, New Hope, Osseo, Plymouth and Robbinsdale.
