Ways to Help
The Historical Society is always looking for volunteers to assist with maintaining the historic building and grounds, working at events, and participating in the running of the organization.
Some of our volunteering options include:
helping plan or working at one of our many events
serving as a presenter or helper for one of our history-related programs
working in the historic house gardens
assisting with any task during our monthly work days
becoming a trustee
Help us with our "Window Fund"
In order to complete the replacement of all of the windows in our historic house, we still need to raise $20,000.
Any amount you can afford to give puts us one step closer to ensuring that the building remains structurally sound and weather-proofed.
