Are you looking for a way to give back to the community and use your skills and talents?  Do you love history, sharing stories, and being with others? From greeting guests to helping in collections, volunteers are needed in every area of the museum.  Your time is a vital part of the museum and helps us so much.  We would love to have your volunteer with us!

Volunteers are needed to help answer the phone, greet visitors, and sell small gifts.  The museum is self-guided, but we encourage questions from visitors as they experience the exhibits.  A small gift shop features local-styled t-shirts, souvenirs, jewelry and children’s items.  The museum has also undertaken a complete inventory and catalog of our entire permanent collection.  We are looking for detail-oriented individuals to help us file, record, and organize our collections.  Other opportunities for volunteers include special events, programs and maintenance projects throughout the year. 

To volunteer, contact Bartholomew Delcamp at 863.676.1759 or
