The legacy and history of Holden Village belong to everyone. For more than four decades, teachers, scholars and artists from all disciplines have given time and spirit to come to this place in the wilderness for the express purpose of freely sharing their gifts.
The resulting sessions, discussions and seminars, which have been faithfully recorded by Village volunteers, constitute a collection of great breadth and importance.
As the cold and dark of winter settles in, its a great time to curl up with cocoa and a story. Check out some of these recordings from story tellers over the years at Holden:
Sessions for Summer 2010 have been added to our audio archive. Listen to recordings of our summer programming from theology to geology to "parentology." You can also visit Summer 2010 on our website for a list of presenters and topics with the dates they were here.

Every September, Holden honors the anniversary of the closing of the Holden Mine. Former Holden workers and residents, families, and friends are gathering in the village this week for historical presentations, story telling sessions, and updates on mine site cleanup. In honor of this event, we have delved through the archives and found for you a list of mine related sessions. Here, you will find information about life during the mining days and historical presentations. Please leave your comments and feel free to suggest other sessions people might like to check out!
Holden Village was lucky to receive a visit from South African minister and teacher Alan Storey. Many were moved and challenged by these sessions, which have been the most requested of the summer.
