SAVING OUR HISTORY
ONE STORY AT A TIME

‘In their words’ is our motto. Instead of us interpreting what someone says, you hear their version. These are the folks that made the history and/or their families and descendants. Video, audio, written – saving the social history of Dallas, interview by interview.

We concentrate on the social aspects of greater Dallas history. We specialize in areas such as nightclubs, bands, restaurants, fairs, parks and more.

Additionally, this group was founded by folks who worked in the nightclubs, bars, theaters and restaurants. Folks that brought huge concerts and big names to the DFW area.
