Oral Histories

Reminiscences of Saunderstown by longtime local residents.  These audio files were originally recorded in the 1970s and 1980s, with several additional recordings of local residents done in the summer of 2016 by library supporter and local resident Maura Sayre. The digitization of the historic recordings was done by Maura Sayre. Our heartfelt thanks go to Maura for this effort in preserving this part of our community’s very special history.
