Take a Step Back in Time: Corinth Oral History Project

Beginning in 2008, the Corinth Historical Society teamed up with a group of local volunteers to conduct interviews of Corinth residents about life in their town. The resulting Corinth Oral History Project records are now housed at the library.

In 2015, Abigail Spanier, a volunteer library intern, began to combine audio files and photographs from the interviews to create short movies featuring some of the interviewees. Watch 3 interviews below and view ALL on the BML YouTube Channel »

Beetlejuice … Beetlejuice … Beetlejuice!

Did you know that East Corinth was the filming location for the classic 1988 film, Beetlejuice? One of our town’s residents took a stack of snapshots during filming. These have been scanned and uploaded to our Flickr page. View the Beetlejuice production snapshots here »
