The Sidewalks and Porch Swings Oral History Project consists of eight audiocassette recordings of oral history interviews with residents, tape logs summarizing the interviews, data sheets on individuals interviewed, release forms, newspaper clippings, a photograph, and a newsletter of the Southside Neighborhood Organization which document the history of the "Tree Streets" neighborhood and residents in Johnson City, Tennessee.
Material is arranged alphabetically by subject. Printed material is housed in box 1 and tape interviews in Box 2.

The Sidewalks and Porch Swings Oral History Project was developed as a class project in Governor's School courses taught at ETSU by Katie Doman, Johnson City, Tennessee in the summers of 1995 and 1996 and was donated to the Archives of Appalachia by Doman on August 9, 1995 and August 12, 1996.
Ned Irwin completed the processing, and the collection was opened to researchers in March 1997.
