Springhouse Films recently completed the Marshallton Oral History Project, a series of interviews with a group of individuals who share their memories of growing up in the Chester County village of Marshallton.

The Marshallton Conservation Trust, the West Bradford Historical Commission and the Friends of Martin’s Tavern working collaboratively, commissioned the project. The purpose of this effort was to provide and memorialize the personal, firsthand recollections of village life in the mid part of the 20th century by people who are still connected to the village today.

Oral histories are an important type of historical preservation and provide a rare opportunity to talk about and record history face to face. It is a living history of people’s unique life experiences.
