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.
Shadelands Ranch Museum at The Walnut Creek Historical Society is a Walnut Creek treasure. Constructed in the Colonial Revival style, this is the only historical home in Walnut Creek that is open to the public. Hiram Penniman, one of Walnut Creek's early settlers, and his wife, Carrie, completed the home in 1903. Much of the furniture and household items on display in the museum belonged to the Penniman family.
If you love history and would like to help preserve and pass on the fascinating story of the Penniman family and of Shadelands please consider becoming a house docent. Leading tours is both fun and rewarding; training is provided. Volunteers are invited to an annual wine and cheese reception, to a special holiday champagne tea, and are entitled to free tours for themselves and their guests.
If you are interested, please send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org; visit our website at wchistory.org or call 925-935-7871.
No additional volunteer opportunities at this time.
