Volunteering

Winters Heritage House Museum is a volunteer-run organization.  There are many ways to volunteer with us.

Volunteer Committee 

The museum is home to several committees that meet regularly and support the preservation and education of historic skills or our community history.  Currently there is a Quilt Committee, an Herb Garden Committee, a Textile Group, a Research Library Committee, and a Docent Committee (which includes our Third Grade Walking Tour guides and Story Hour teachers).  In-active committees currently are our Hearth Cook Committee and our Heritage Artisan Guild.

The museum provides a meeting place and exhibit space for these committees and in return they share their talents through offering classes or by providing assistance during special events.  All committees meet one or two times a month and are welcoming to beginners.
