Lambertville natives, you are invited to participate in a storytelling project to bring our City’s history to life.

The Lambertville Historical Society is partnering with Lambertville Hall and the Bucks County Playhouse to listen to and record your memories—and then curate and develop these oral histories into dramatic storytelling experiences later this year for family, friends, the public, and future generations!

If you grew up or lived in Lambertville before 1980, you are invited to an initial research session led by Michaela Murphy, the Bucks County Playhouse Director of Education. You need to bring only your memories—at this event there will be no “presentations” or general audience. Michaela will engage the group to discuss two themes:

  1. “Lambertville at Work.” Tell us about your first job, and about your subsequent jobs in Lambertville. Feel free to describe past family-owned or other businesses in Lambertville.
  1. Any other memories about life and people in Lambertville you feel are important to be related. It’s up to you!

Attend the next research session:

Saturday, February 23, 1:00 – 3:00 pm, Lambertville Hall, 57 Bridge Street, Lambertville. Coffee and snacks will be served.

How to Take Part

If you are local, and want to participate, sign up via email to, with “storytelling” as the subject. RSVPs are very much encouraged so we can plan, but walk-ins will certainly be allowed. Please invite other Lambertville natives.

If you no longer live in the Lambertville area, or can’t attend on 2/23 and want to participate, we invite you to share your memories on this page, and we will follow up with you.

After this research stage, LHS and LH/BCP will work together to develop exciting programs for the public later in 2019. Stay tuned!
