Contributors - Huntley Project Museum of Irrigated Agriculture
Huntley Project Museum of Irrigated Agriculture is a nonprofit organization committed to preserving, interpreting and sharing the human history of geographic area known as the Huntley Project. The emphasis is on the homesteading era from the late 1800's thru the early 1900's including the technology and history of irrigated agriculture in the northern Great Plains. We carry out our mission by creating collections, undertaking preservation, interpretation, exhibits, demonstration, research, publishing and educational programming. We seek to involve the community. Combining education, experience and fun we strive to increase understanding of the rural environment and agricultural life.
Included in this collection are the oral histories of 15 individuals, most of them from the families who originally homesteaded on the Huntley Irrigation Project; many of whom still farm and own land on the Project today. June 26, 2017 will mark the 110th anniversary of the opening of the Huntley Irrigation Project. Generations yet to be born will listen to these recordings and hear the stories and experiences of people whose voices will soon be gone. Join me in hearing their incredible stories of ingenuity, faith, perseverance and ultimately, success.
