The Historical Society is solely supported by grants, donations, membership and VOLUNTEERS!

GREETERS & DOCENTS – Volunteers are always needed to be Greeters during our open season.
MUSEUM VISITING SEASON OPENS ON MAY 1ST. Please consider joining the team to be a greeter on a Friday or a Sunday afternoon from 1 pm – 2 pm. We ask that you donate one day a month. In our busiest season you might only volunteer six days between May and November. Substitutes are needed also. If a signed volunteer cannot make a scheduled date, they will call in advance and a substitute will replace them.
