The North  Shore is home to a rich history and diverse culture. In Moments in Time, we speak with community members about their memories from different periods of our region's past to help foster an appreciation and understanding of the community in which we find ourselves today.

Arts, cultural and history features on WTIP are made possible in part by funding from the Minnesota Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund. Check out other programs and features funded in part with support from the Heritage Fund.
