Oral Histories

These Oral Histories were conducted on behalf of the Rice County Historical Society by Roy Anderson and filmed by Fox Video Productions.  Each narrator has graciously granted RCHS rights and permissions to share these valuable pieces of Rice County History.

If you have any suggestions for other Rice County Citizens to interview and/or would be interested in being an Oral History Project Volunteer please do not hesitate to contact RCHS by email or by phone at 507-332-2121
