Through public humanities programs, in-depth historic research, and local partnerships, Storied Capital wields history for transformational community change. Explore the links below for examples of our past work.
Our Civil Rights: Our Common Table was a discussion series held in the summer of 2018 in Danville, Virginia. This series explored the history of food and race in the South and in Danville. The series culminated in a guest appearance by Jamie Ross, the director at Red Dirt Productions and a former fellow with Virginia Humanities, and a history harvest of family recipes.
Working closely with community members, local government, and other historic management professionals, Storied Capital’s research documents historic buildings and districts to advance nomination applications for the National Register of Historic Places and the Virginia Landmark Register. Historic listing allows contributing resources to be eligible for tax credit programs, aiding in overall redevelopment costs.
