PHOENIX – Life in the neighboring communities of Portal, Arizona and Rodeo, New Mexico is the subject of the newest collection of oral histories on the Arizona Memory Project. Residents share stories about community events, the activities of local groups and organizations, and what brought them to the southeast corner of Arizona.
“We are excited to have this collection of oral histories from the Portal-Rodeo area represented in the Arizona Memory Project," said Amadee Ricketts, the Cochise County Library District director. "All of these videos were created originally for this project, and they tell fascinating stories about this unique area on the Arizona-New Mexico southern border and the people who have lived there.”
Researchers of the Portal-Rodeo Stories collection on the Arizona Memory Project can view it indefinitely and on any digital device at http://go.azsos.gov/portalrodeo.
