Hugo Storytelling
 
One of the ways the Hugo Neighborhood Association & Historical Society aims to best promote the social welfare of its Hugo neighbors is by collecting, preserving, interpreting, and researching its rich local history, and encouraging neighbor’s interest in the history of the Hugo area, in their geographic place, in their community.
 
The Hugo Neighborhood’s history is about the past and present as history is being lived everyday. This web page is for Hugoites to share their stories. Those that live here now, had lived here in the past, or would like to have lived here. There are no boundaries to the text of their stories, only what life has dealt or what their imagination can conjure up. There are standards developed by the Hugo Storytelling Committee on the "tone" of story submissions.
 
We believe the quality of rural life in Hugo is enhanced through citizen knowledge of its history, including its living participants, and the sense of community that a historical perspective facilitates. In the end, Hugoites’ individual stories will tell the community story of cultural growth and cultural impact. Children will see its impact on their learning. Families will see the effect of culture through their local participation and use of resources. Community development will see its impact economically and through greater social involvement and especially pride.
