The Heritage Farmstead Museum is looking for long term volunteers to lead guided tours!

Docent guided public tours are held Tuesday-Sunday at 1:30p.m during the year and 10:30 in the summer, and last approximately one and a half hours. Volunteers undergo training on local Plano history, turn-of-the-century Texas history, farm and family life. Guided tours are given of the Farrell-Wilson House and grounds. Set your volunteer days based on your schedule! This is a wonderful opportunity to meet people from all over the world and to assist a vital growing organization!

Potential volunteers must fill company provided background check is required for both of these opportunities. Consider this fun and worthwhile opportunity to give back and preserve history in our community!

Mission Statement

The mission of the Heritage Farmstead Museum is to collect, preserve, and interpret late 19th century Blackland Prairie history while making use of the authentically restored Farrell-Wilson Farmstead, a designated historic site.

Description

The Heritage Farmstead Association works to preserve, teach, and demonstrate the past to more than 30,000 visitors annually. Transformed into a living museum of agricultural history, this 4.5 acre historic farm complex has been awarded designation by the Plano Landmark Association, a State of Texas Historical marker, and a listing in the National Register of Historic Places. The museum has received accreditation from the prestigious American Association of Museums.

Heritage Farmstead Museum relies on volunteers for many of its programs, events, and day to day operations. We have a wonderful team of volunteers who we train in their volunteer positions until they feel comfortable. We have parties, and opportunities to engage with other volunteers and staff.

Come join our team and help preserve history for generations to come!
