In partnership with the Missouri History Museum‘s St. Louis Sound exhibit, Dr. Kelland’s fall 2021 Introduction to Public History students produced a number of projects documenting the aural history of the region.

This exhibit interprets the history of the St. Louis region through the sense of sound. This project features soundscapes from partner sites including the Centre for French Colonial Life, the Campbell House Museum, the Thomas Sappington House Museum, the Scott Joplin House State Historic Site, the Field House Museum, the World Chess Hall of Fame Museum, the National Blues Museum, the Lewis and Clark Boathouse Museum, and The Sharlot Hall Museum in Prescott, Arizona.
