Volunteer 2021

Volunteers help in many ways; as costumed docents giving tours, gatekeepers greeting guests, craft people demonstrating a variety of skills, helping with marketing and social media, teaching special classes, maintaining the grounds and buildings, guiding local and international visitors or helping with communications, newsletters and graphics.

Anyone that has a love of history and seeks to share that love is needed. All ages (children under 16 years old with parental supervision) are invited to serve in the village and to time-travel, way back to the 1850s.

Docents usually serve a regular 3-hour shift per week. We can supply period clothing until you get a chance to get your own. The Pioneer Village will be open 4 days a week beginning Memorial Day weekend and ending on Labor Day.

If interested, please complete this Volunteer Application form and we will be in contact with you soon. Thank you!
