As a true “Society,” the Historical Society is driven by its members and volunteers.  Whether you’re looking for a chance to conduct a research project, host at a museum site, or help out on a special project, there are countless ways to get involved and learn more about local history: 

Featured opportunity:

  • Museum Host:  Welcome visitors at our Ice House Museum, Victorian Home & Carriage House Museum, or Little Red Schoolhouse.  Provide visitors with an introduction to the museum and exhibits, assist with gift shop purchases, and answer general questions.

Other opportunities:

  • Council Member:  Volunteer Councils work with the Board of Directors to manage our historic properties.  Join the Council of the Ice House Museum/Behrens-Rapp Station, Victorian Home & Carriage House Museum, or Little Red Schoolhouse to help oversee care of the property and grounds, programming, and special projects.

  • Education Assistant:  Work with the Education Coordinator on school tours, in-class programs, Summer Enrichment Program planning, and special presentations.  From leading tours for school-age groups to researching local history topics, there are opportunities to work with a wide range of age groups.
  • Special Event Committee Member:  Throughout the year, the Historical Society has a number of special events and activities that require some extra energy.
