Preserving oral history is a critical step in the preservation of local history. Because those who provide the information are generally older members of society, both their lives and their memories are at risk of being lost to time.  These oral history recordings, featuring several citizens of Ingersoll discussing the town in the early part of the 20th century, were preserved for posterity in the 1980s.
