What should I bring?
Bring your memories! All you need is a short story and some enthusiasm and we will help you do the rest. One of our Time Traveler team members will make an audio recording of you telling your story, and then help you add it to the Keweenaw Time Traveler Explore App (learn more about the Explore App here). You can locate your story on a historic map—maybe at your grandmother's house where she taught you to make her special crust or at your favorite local pasty-maker. You can also include photographs to illustrate your story. Either bring a digital file on a thumb drive or bring the photograph and we can scan it for you (We'll even give you the high resolution digital file to keep!) Plan to spend about 10–20 minutes sharing your Pasty Story. After that, internet users will be able to enjoy your story and leave you feedback. We will also work with the StoryCorps app to share Pasty Stories with a national audience!
This program is a fun--and tasty!—way to #MapYourHistory with the Keweenaw Time Traveler. Can't wait to hear your Pasty Stories!
