On July 2, I returned to Southeast Kansas to present our audio documentary, “Treece, Kansas: Ghost Town in the Making,” along with the photographs of Dina Kantor. We had a great turnout and got to see lots of familiar faces including many of the past residents of Treece. I have never had the humbling experience of standing alongside people listening to our effort to document their story, it was both scary and exciting. I feel so grateful for the opportunity to have worked with the people of Treece who so generously opened their homes and hearts to share the story of their town.
Check out the article in Joplin Globe about the event.
Funding for the documentary was provided in part by the Kansas Humanities Council and the generous gifts of many friends and supporters. Thank you!
