Events

The Chevy Chase Historical Society sponsors two public lectures each year on topics related to local history. When possible, CCHS also organizes History-Go-Round tours, often related to recent lectures. While CCHS lectures are free and open to all, there is a nominal fee for our History-Go-Round tours to cover refreshments, and reservations are required.

Future Events

Oral History Volunteer Workshop

Saturday, September 28, 2019 - 10:00am

On September 28, 10am-12pm, the Chevy Chase Historical Society will offer a training workshop for volunteers wishing to assist CCHS in conducting oral interviews. Led by Anna Kaplan, DC Oral History Collaborative Consulting Oral Historian, the workshop will offer instruction and guidance on oral history best practices, interview preparation and techniques, and editing and finalizing interview transcripts.

Since the 1980s, CCHS has made it a priority to capture community history by conducting Oral History interviews with long-time Chevy Chase residents, as well as adjacent businesses and their employees. Oral History is essential for future generations to better understand the lived experience of history, and the many meanings that people make of these experiences.

The workshop is free and will take place at the CCHS Archive and Research Center, 8401 Connecticut Avenue, Suite 1010. As space is limited, RSVP to info@chevychasehistory.org or 301-656-6141.


The Chevy Chase Historical Society is supported in part by a grant from the Arts and Humanities Council of Montgomery County
