History has a greater impact when it connects the people, events, places, stories, and ideas of the past with those that are important and meaningful to the communities, people, and audiences of today. Let's see where Massasoit Community College has been over the years!
Massasoit Voices was conducted from 2011-2017 in conjunction with Massasoit Community College's 50th anniversary. The project documents the lives and careers of several Massasoit Community College administrators, staff, and trustees.
In partnership with the Massasoit Veterans Services, we are conducting The Veterans History Project. Our goal is to collect, preserve, and make accessible the personal recollections of Massasoit men and women who have served in the armed forces.
Commonwealth Museum Digital Exhibition
Despite unequal pay and treatment Massachusetts African Americans played a large role during the Civil War, in the Army, Navy, and on the home-front. In various ways blacks in the Commonwealth stepped forward and helped change the course of history. This exhibit tells the story of their courage, strength, and sacrifice; a story of the quest for a nation free from slavery.
Digital Commonwealth is a non-profit collaborative organization that provides resources and services to support the creation, management, and dissemination of cultural heritage materials held by Massachusetts libraries, museums, historical societies, and archives. Digital Commonwealth currently has over 130 member institutions from across the state.
This site provides access to thousands of images, documents, and sound recordings that have been digitized by member institutions so that they may be available to researchers, students, and the general public.
