Collective Memory

May 19, 2020 @ 8:00 am - May 25, 2020 @ 5:00 pm

Share Your Story

The UHM Collective Memory Initiative

Author and poet, Oscar Wilde, wrote “Memory is the diary that we all carry about with us.” As we all adjust to the constant change of living in the midst of the Coronavirus pandemic, the Upcountry History Museum invites you to become a part of our Collective Memory Initiative by sharing stories and photographs of how you’re coping; how you’re helping family and friends; how you’re staying strong in this time of uncertainty; or how you’re creating a new normal.

Our focus with this online “diary” is to ensure that this moment in the history of South Carolina’s Upcountry is told by members of our communities, remembered through your writings and/or images, and preserved for future generations.

As keepers of history, we recognize that we don’t get to choose the events that force change, but we do have the privilege of safeguarding the memories they create. Join us and become storytellers for history’s sake.

When uploading your photos, please post a location, description, date (if you know it), and names of any people in the images if possible.

Our categories are as follows:
Class of 2020 | Journals, Blogs, and Vlogs | Socially Distant | Unconventional Education | Empty Everything | Business at a Distance | Frontline Heroes





Please keep in mind that some images may not become part of the Upcountry History Museum’s permanent collection. Any images that are not part of the collection will be retained for the website, educational and research purposes.


THANK YOU for making history today!
