During these uncertain times, how can we help?
See below to access our COVID-19 Resource Hub, and to explore our growing directory of both COVID-19-specific and virtual volunteering opportunities.
The Oberlin Heritage Center has a lot of visitors in the summer, and we’re also fortunate to have a lot of robust plant life right outside our doors. That’s why we need Outdoor Volunteers to keep our campus looking fresh! Outdoor Volunteers will weed our sidewalks and patios, mow the grass, pick up litter, clean fences, and assist with other routine summer tasks on the property. By working to keep the grounds clean and free of clutter, the work done by Outdoor Volunteers enables OHC visitors to focus on local history and enjoy themselves.
Outdoor Volunteers should be dependable and punctual, as well as physically able to complete the tasks outlined above. A regular schedule, or even a one-time commitment, for individuals or groups may be arranged, and volunteers should come in appropriate clothing for working outdoors. If you have favorite gardening tools, bring them along!

The mission of the Oberlin Heritage Center is to preserve and share Oberlin's unique heritage and to make our community a better place to live, learn, work, and visit.
The Oberlin Heritage Center, a non-profit, membership organization, is our community's historical society and historic preservation organization as well as a complex of historic sites that is accredited by the American Association of Museums.
The Oberlin Heritage Center tour program offers guided tours three days a week, with group tours available by appointment. Our basic tour visits three historic buildings: the 1836 Little Red Schoolhouse, the 1866 Monroe House, and the 1884 Jewett House. Main themes of the tour include life in 1830s-c. 1915 Oberlin, African-American history, the Underground Railroad, women's history, scientific discovery, and missionary, temperance, and other reform movements.
We'll work with your schedule.
