Neighborhood history to be recorded

By The Active Age | March 3, 2020

Got a great story from one of Wichita’s early neighborhoods?  The Old Wichita Neighborhoods Interview Project would like to hear from you. 

Patrick O’Connor, an author and contributor to the active age, is working on the project with the Wichita State University library’s Special Collections section. He hopes to conduct 100 interviews. 

“This will be your words about what you lived through, hard times or good in Wichita’s longest-standing neighborhoods,” he said.

The interviews will be preserved for future research, and O’Connor has also promised to share a few choice ones with the active age. He can be reached at or (316) 832-0309.
