In 1984, during the 100th anniversary celebration of Kalamazoo becoming a city, a group of photographers spent a few months documenting what life was like in the community. Since then, the project has expanded to a year-long process of documenting Kalamazoo County every decade or so, most recently during 2020. Learn about the history of this important project, the people that make it happen, and see some of the images that will shape Kalamazoo County’s history for the future. Regina Gorham has been the Collections Manager at the Kalamazoo Valley Museum for seven years, and was involved in the administration of the 2020 project.
