Q: What's in the database?

We are in the process of adding the entire photograph collection to the database; it is anticipated that this process will take several years. In addition, the Museum has conducted hundreds of interviews with Waterbury residents through a number of projects, including the Neighborhood History Project, the African American History Project, the 20th Century Enterprise Project and the Brass Workers History Project. The transcripts of these interviews are also being added to the database.
