We are excited to announce the Frisco Historic Park & Museum’s 2023 history-gathering project- Frisco As I Remember. Forty years ago, the founding women of the Museum launched a letter-writing campaign to gather community stories and memories from the earliest days of Frisco. These letters have been invaluable to the Museum as they capture daily life and the spirit of Frisco in ways newspapers and formal documents did not.
In honor of the Museum’s 40th anniversary, we are launching a second letter-writing campaign and a year-long project called Frisco As I Remember. Throughout the coming months, we will host community history talks, share photographs, and connect with current and former residents and visitors to gather their stories and memories of Frisco. These letters will be valuable resources for future generations and deepen our understanding of our shared history.
