Founded in 1846, Limestone County eventually became the home to over 100 thriving self-sufficient communities rich in history and tradition. With the passage of time many of these agricultural communities have dwindled to almost nothing or have totally disappeared, and the human resources who have first-hand knowledge of their histories are becoming fewer each year.
The Footprints of Times Past project is a joint effort between the Limestone County Historical Commission and the Oral History Institute at Baylor University to document the histories of these "vanishing" communities. Individuals who once lived in these communities were interviewed and transcripts of these interviews are currently being made. These interviews will be posted soon.
The videos below were also produced as part of the Footprints of Times Past oral history project.
