What Living in Small-Town Alpena, Michigan, Teaches You

Alpena, Michigan

Story Narrative:

"I think living in a small town, you get to know each other more, and by knowing each other, you care more about each other, and it's more personal living in a small town."

Part of the "Stories from Main Street" project--an effort to collect stories about small-town life across the United States. The project was the brainchild of the Smithsonian's "Museum on Main Street" program, an initiative that brings traveling exhibitions about subjects of national importance to small towns across America.
