Volunteers

"Volunteers are the lifeblood of the Historical Society and Museum."
David Stuart
Executive Director/CEO

The Historical Society and Museum relies heavily on volunteers. These volunteers have reported more than 34,000 hours of donated time (16.3 FTE) per year in recent years. This donated time is valued at more than $640,000 annually.

The volunteers who conduct the Museum’s educational programs and services for schoolchildren are called “docents” (from Latin “to teach”) and the Docent Council is organized to train and maintain this critical workforce. Other volunteers include a group that restores historic agricultural equipment, and “Friends of the Museum” volunteers who do a variety of support tasks.
