From the Emerald Isle to Little Ireland: The Legacy of Farming in Brownsburg

This oral history project was conducted by a third grade class. The children generated interview questions for the farmers of Little Ireland, an area settled by Irish immigrants in the mid-1800's. They wrote the introduction and conclusion to the project, selected the photographs, painted a rural Indiana landscape, and hand-stitched a quilt commemorating the legacy of farming. The project is preserved on CD-ROM with accompanying hard copy.

Originally submitted by: Edward A. Pease, Representative (7th District).
