``Sitting on the crew porch on a late summer afternoon, you know, just before dinner starts. The curve and sweep of the worn treads on the staircase going up the main room.

A Study of Stories at the Moosilauke Ravine Lodge

This oral histories project aims to gain insight into the expansive and intricate community that has been established at the Moosilauke Ravine Lodge by sharing the stories and experiences of Dartmouth students, alumni and community members.  We believe in using nuanced and anecdotal stories to capture a communal memory of the space. We hope that this site serves as a forum for sharing, reminiscing, and sustaining the memory of a building that has meant so much to so many over the past 78 years.
