Chesterfield Remembers is an oral history project devoted to capturing and sharing remembrances about the people, places and events that paint a vivid picture of Chesterfield County. These audio and video vignettes are included in Chesterfield County Public Libraryâs digital collection and are available to all. With a focus on gathering diverse and impactful recordings, the stories become a powerful, inclusive collection created by Chesterfieldâs vibrant community members. These members, whether prominent or everyday citizens, share stories rich in history, drama and excitement to demonstrate the evolution of Chesterfield into the dynamic community it is today.
