Museum on Main Street’s story-collecting initiative, called Stories from Main Street and expanded into the Be Here: Main Street project, began with this desire to hear authentic stories and interpretations from Americans—with the ultimate goal of documenting life in nearly every pocket of United States and its territories. Stories from Main Street is a “community sourcing” project. Our intention is to gather source material from our community—the American people—to make the content we share even more compelling and diverse.
