“We are our stories. We tell them to stay alive or keep alive those who only live in the telling.” ~ Niall Williams, History of the Rain
The We are our Stories Project is a heritage project from Yellowhead County that is collecting stories and photos from local residents that will paint a picture of the area we live in from the Coal Branch to the Pembina River and everywhere in-between.
Yellowhead County Heritage is asking you to share your story about life in our community. We’ll be talking with current and former locals from every corner of the county and we’ll gather stories, pictures, and memories for your reading pleasure.
Be a part of this project and share your stories!

The We are our Stories project kindly invites anyone who has a story of the past, whether short or long, to participate!
Yellowhead County Heritage program will partner with Yellowhead County libraries and the Tipple Park Museum to bring our community a deep slice of local history. We are calling the project: We are our stories.
Please contact the Yellowhead County Heritage Department, a Yellowhead County Library branch, or the Tipple Park Museum. We’ll provide you with a transcript of your story and digitize any photos you bring to us.
“We are our stories. We compress years of experience, thought, and emotion into a few compact narratives that we convey to others and tell ourselves. That has always been true. But personal narrative has become more prevalent, and perhaps more urgent, in a time of abundance, when many of us are freer to seek a deeper understanding of ourselves and our purpose.” ~ Dan Pink, A Whole New Mind
