Since 2003, StoryCorps has collected thousands of stories from people all across the United States. The NPR oral history project archives each story in the Library of Congress' American Folklife Center. We spoke with site manager Jacqueline Van Meter, who's parked the StoryCorps Airstream mobile studio in Memorial Park to collect stories from the people of Jacksonville.
