Scope and Content
This collection consists of oral history interviews of people who grew up living on the Ogeechee River and its watershed.

Materials include photographs and written documents with audio recordings making the bulk of the collection. Materials were originally collected by c.a.s.e. Consulting Services for the Ogeechee Riverkeeper organization.
