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

Special Project
needs volunteers

Transcribe letters from the 1800s & early 1900s

Volunteers are the historic house are working on a long-term project to transcribe more than 300 letters to and from family and friends of former inhabitants of the Parks-Bentley house.

Even though the cursive can be difficult to decipher, the process and the rewards are gratifying, to say the least.

We are looking for "Cursive Detectives" to help us transcribe the remaining letters.   AND... you can bring your laptop and work with our group at Parks-Bentley Place. 


Call Chris at 518-225-8010 for details.



Donations, big and small, are what help us maintain this local treasure and its grounds as well as provide free, history-related programming to area schools and residents throughout each season. We will soon need to repair and replace window casings and lintels on the main building.


Your donations are always welcome.  Help us continue to maintain the Parks-Bentley Place property keep the history of our region alive by sending your donation to us at:
