We need volunteers for short term positions to help bring history alive for our town’s elementary school social studies programs. The time commitment is small but your impact is tremendous.

The two hour morning programs usually run for several days a week during late October thorough mid-November and then again in late May and early June. The dates and time commitments are varied so we should be able to accommodate volunteer schedules. Even a commitment of one morning a year would be most welcome. All classes are accompanied by their teachers and adult chaperones. We provide the training.

Through a Child’s Eyes: Daily Life at Johnson Cottage

Volunteers would work hands on with children as they learn how to churn butter and experience 19th century life in the Johnson Cottage. Other units may include designing a quilt, investigating 19th century clothing, or going to school.

House Detectives at Parson Barnard House

Long before the PBS program of the same name, we have conducted “Become a House Detective” at the Parson Barnard House and Barn. The program explores the concept of change over time, the impact of the Industrial Revolution, and man’s impact on his environment. The “Detectives” look for signs of technological advancements, and discover what improvements the age of manufacturing made in New England domestic life.

Volunteers are needed to learn and give the barn tour, but can also volunteer to learn and give the technology tour of the Parson Barnard House.

Looking for the Past: Local history all around us

We offer several multi-part programs including an in-classroom presentation providing a brief overview of the town’s history, and a field trip to the Old Center that features the 1832 Hay Scales Building, a walking tour based on map skills, experiencing an early classroom and jobs in Mr. Johnson’s time.

Other Volunteer Needs

Our volunteer needs are not limited to educational programming, we also welcome those interested in event planning, collection management, historic preservation and conservation as well as those interested in giving tours.

Contact Carol Majahad today for further information on how you can make an impact.
