As announced at our 50th Anniversary Celebration on May 7, we are now launching the Cobble Hill History Project. The project will have several components. First and foremost is a written history of the neighborhood by our great local historian Franics Morrone. In addition to Francis's text, we are forming a history committee that will oversee a Cobble Hill wiki, like Wikipedia. How will the wiki work? Everyone in the community will be able to write the histories of their blocks, their buildings, and their businesses. It will be neighborhood history written by the neighborhood. We hope that this will be a community resource that will outlast all of us.
If you want to be part of the Cobble Hill History Committee, please send us an e-mail message. The first meeting of the committee will be on Thursday, May 28 ay 7 p.m. We hope the committee will be a mix of the historically minded, the tech-savvy, and the downright curious.
