HoA | archive project

annetta left a significant archive in the property. It is well preserved but not ordered or catalogued. preserving the elements of the archive related to her battle against aggressive development is a public history and a document of a social movement. it is significant to the local community because it holds evidence of how they held those in power accountable. its content will generate discussion and enable further action. further, it demonstrates to the younger community that they too hold power if they collect and organise effectively. And for our volunteers who share Annetta’s ideology, the archive demonstrates that we can achieve what we set out to do, whilst maintaining our own historical record for future generations. it also supports our longer term aim, to restore the property to a useful condition for community use.
