Heritage STORIES
Folklore ~ Folk Stories ~ Tall Tales ~ Heritage Stories ~ Legends

Everyone has a story to tell. Our lives are like scrapbooks - full of people, places, and adventures we experienced. Your story is a glimpse into history that needs to be preserved. One way to preserve those memories is to share your story so it can be enjoyed by generations to come.

If you don't have a story of your own to tell, tell your favorite folk story, tall tale, or urban legend. Story entries will be reviewed and approved before appearing on the website.

Below are some examples of historic tales that have been told for generations.
