At Eastside Heritage Center’s annual Bellevue Strawberry Festival in Crossroads Park, members of the community engage directly in the preservation and interpretation of Eastside history by sharing their “journey stories” with us. We hope you enjoy these “Birth Place” segments from 2011 and 2012, as introductions to the diversity of stories collected. These video oral history projects were made possible through the support of 4Culture, the City of Bellevue and Humanities Washington.
Journey Stories Segment One - . this is a 12-minute segment hosted on YouTube.
