Local Story is a nomadic public program offering a speaking platform to people who contribute to the living history of this remarkable region. The program is comprised of individual presentation and panel events, all of which revolve around the theme of locality, personal history, and the pursuit of opportunity in Washington County. Presentation locations are chosen by each presenter and serve as an immersive backdrop in the telling of their story.
