Telling Our Stories was created by Interpretive Solutions in collaboration with the Lancaster County Planning Commission. While some of the region’s heritage partners are professionally-managed heritage sites, many potential partners have little knowledge of interpretive planning. The manual is a step-by-step guide for those organizations who lack a background in interpretation, but wish to participate in one of the county’s heritage programs.
