Frisco As I Remember: A History Gathering Project

In 1979, the founding women of the Frisco Historical Committee launched a letter-writing campaign to gather community stories and memories from the earliest days of Frisco in honor of the 100th anniversary of the Town of Frisco. These letters captured Frisco’s character, spirit, and daily life in a way that newspapers and formal documents could not. Some of these stories reflected the laughter and joy of small-town revelry. Some told of the heartache and danger of mountain life. The stories and memories shared in these letters have been used in books, exhibits, and programming on Frisco’s history ever since.

In 2023, the Museum launched a new history-gathering project called Frisco As I Remember, centered around a second letter-writing campaign to gather stories and memories of Frisco residents from 1940 to 2010. We aim to create a robust letter collection spanning over 100 years of Frisco history. These memories will be valuable resources for future generations and further connect our past and future. The Frisco As I Remember project will be an ongoing project that includes events, oral histories, letter-writing, and open-house programs to highlight Frisco’s history.
