Winchester During COVID-19

“Distant Horizons” quilt by Denise Konicek

We are living through an historic moment, one that will shape our lives for many years to come. Join us in creating a permanent record of this time in Winchester.

Winchester During COVID-19 aims to be a central gathering point for community narratives, images, videos, art, and other records of the impact of COVID-19 on life, work, family, and business. 

Some examples of ways to share your story include journals and narratives, poetry, photographs, video, social media posts. Please upload your digital files using the form on the right. You may also submit paper originals to the Archival Center, 71 Mt. Vernon Street, Winchester, MA 01890.

If you have a larger collection of materials you wish to donate or questions about the project, please contact Ellen Knight, Town Archivist, at [email protected]
