SKOWHEGAN — A volunteer open house is scheduled for 3-4 p.m. Tuesday, May 24, at the Skowhegan History House Museum & Research Center, 66 Elm St. History House veteran volunteers and folks from the area who would like to learn more about the Volunteer Program are welcome.

Volunteers play an active role in preserving and promoting collections dating back through the late 1700s.

Volunteers assist with visitors and tours, design and create displays, assist with clerical work, answer the phone, or conduct research. Others maintain and clean the museum, teach small groups of children about local history and historic preservation and many work directly with artifact preservation and cataloging. Others dedicate their time working in the Heirloom Gardens, assisting in preparing for major projects or events, or assist with tasks pertaining to society membership, preparing materials for distribution or mailings, creating presentations etc.

Museum staff strives to match a volunteer’s skills and interests to meaningful and necessary tasks.
