In May 2013, the History and Arts Commission of the City of Citrus Heights sponsored an Oral History Project. Residents of Citrus Heights participated in the recording of their memories and recollections of living in Citrus Heights. The Students of the Art Institute of California conducted and recorded interviews of Citrus Heights residents. The interviews have been preserved in the city's archives and made available for your enjoyment. The interviews are available for viewing below.
Mission:The History and Arts Commission’s Oral History Project will document the history of Citrus Heights and surrounding area through recorded interviews to gather, preserve and interpret the voices and memories of people and participants in past events; to preserve and interpret memories for the present and future generations.
Vision: the Oral History project will be a repository of interviews, recorded on audio and video, that provides first-hand accounts of the people, places and events of Citrus Heights; a resource that collectively tells the many stories of Citrus Heights. Oral History Interviews
