Share your memories of Garver Feed Mill during their Grand Opening Weekend, November 2, 9am-noon (3241 Garver Green, Madison)
Places conjure vivid memories and experiences. Help document the unique history of the building known as Garver Feed Mill on Madison's East Side. Whether you played in the space as a child or a young adult; worked or visited there when the building housed the Garver Supply Co. or another agri-business; or were involved in more recent preservation and renovation efforts, now's the time to add your voice to this part of Madison history.
15-minute time slots for story sharing will be available in Suite 150, next to Ledger Coffee, during the morning on Saturday, November 2 from 9am-noon. Local volunteers will help run recording equipment and ask follow-up questions in an informal environment. Stories will be added to a new collection in the Madison Living History Project, the digital repository hosted by Madison Public Library. Sign up in advance to share your story or sign up via phone 608-266-6350 (ask for Laura Damon-Moore). This event is part of the second day of the Garver Feed Mill grand opening weekend, which also includes a panel discussion of the history and architecture of the Garver Feed Mill building, tours, and visiting the Garver Feed Mill businesses.

The Story Gathering Station is made possible by a grant from Beyond the Page, with additional support from Madison Community Foundation and National Endowment for the Humanities.
