From the Library of Congress and National Archives, to the smallest local historical society, Milestones can fill in the gaps.
Every year, millions of museum-goers flock to historical exhibits to be educated, enlightened and entertained. Tap into that craving with three-dimensional and on-line exhibits designed to tell your organization’s story to employees, customers and the world.
Oral History Programs
Official documents tell only part of any organization’s story. An oral history program helps current and future generations benefit from the hard-earned, hands-on wisdom of the people who built your business, industry, or association. Since 1987, Milestones has conducted taped interviews with more than 300 subjects, including Fortune 100 executives, media celebrities, policymakers, high-level entrepreneurs and long-time support staff.

Is a big anniversary just around the corner for your organization? Major milestones provide the perfect opportunity to blend past, present and future into a meaningful celebration destined to last long after the party is over. Our anniversary master planning service offers as much or as little help as you need to create and implement a thoughtful blueprint for events, publications, outreach and memorabilia.
Every institution has a history, but not every one has a heritage. Preserve it, promote it, profit from it….with a cost-effective program tailored to fit your organization. Whether you need a small archive, an oral history program, a corporate history brochure, or an on-line historical exhibit, Milestones will work with you to document your past and leverage its lessons for the future.
