Everybody has a story. What's yours? “Stories from Main Street” is the Smithsonian’s new app for collecting stories from America’s small towns and rural communities. This is the place where anyone with an interest in small-town life can add his or her own personal experiences to the archive. Tell us what’s special about your hometown. After you share your own experience, be sure to listen to stories left by other users.
Selected stories from the application will be featured on the Smithsonian’s “Stories from Main Street” website. Help us document the rich history of America’s small towns with stories that exemplify the excitement, diversity and creativity of their citizens. The Smithsonian wants to hear from you!
