Stories from Main Street

By Smithsonian Institution

This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.


Everybody has a story. What's yours? “Stories from Main Street” is the Smithsonian’s new app for collecting stories from America’s small towns and rural communities. This is the place where anyone with an interest in small-town life can add his or her own personal experiences to the archive. Tell us what’s special about your hometown. After you share your own experience, be sure to listen to stories left by other users.

Selected stories from the application will be featured on the Smithsonian’s “Stories from Main Street” website. Help us document the rich history of America’s small towns with stories that exemplify the excitement, diversity and creativity of their citizens. The Smithsonian wants to hear from you!

We thank our contributors from around the world for adding great stories to the database. Please be aware that only stories submitted from within the United States are available for playback through the app’s “Listen” function at this time, but we are saving all international contributions for future use.

Created by the Museum on Main Street (MoMS) program within the Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service (SITES). Our exhibitions travel across the 50 states and U.S. territories. For complete schedule of our exhibitions visit
