We are so excited to open the museum for new hours on Saturdays! In addition to our hours on Tuesdays from 9 am to 4 pm & Wednesdays from 9 am to noon, come by on Saturdays from 10am to 2pm. Other times can be arranged by appointment. The safety of our volunteers and visitors is important to us and so we continue to wear masks indoors.

The historical society and museum are staffed by volunteers.  Membership has long supported the site, giving generously of their time and skills. 

Volunteers act as docents when the museum is open, keep the buildings and grounds maintained, prepare exhibits, plan special events, and perform all functions necessary to keep the museum running.  All of our school programs are staffed with volunteers. 

We welcome new members and new volunteers of all ages.  Volunteers certainly benefit an organization such as ours, but it is the volunteers reap the true rewards.
