Friends of "R" House

  • 1 person is interested

The Friends of "R" House is currently seeking a volunteer with a documentable background in writing and editing.

We are a small membership-based historic house museum association that works in cooperation with the City of Moutain View for the benefit and continued interpretation of the oldest remaining home in Mountain View. We are a group of preservation-minded individuals looking to promote local history through the medium of a house museum. If you are interested in any of the above, please contact us today.

The Board of Directors is looking for a volunteer to help write and edit the content associated with a virtual tour exhibit expected to roll-out in May. Volunteers must have a working knowledge of Google Docs for use as a collaborating tool with board members working on this project and must also be available to attend Board and project-specific meetings.

You must have your own device to work on. All work is to be done remotely. Hours are flexible and we're willing to work with your schedule.

Mission Statement

The mission of the Friends of "R" House is to contribute to the preservation and public knowledge of the Rengstorff House, the Rengstorff Family, and the history of Mountain View through various activities and events, including community outreach, educational events, and research.

Description

While the Rengstorff House is a wonderful example of architecture in its own right, it is also a prime model of adaptive reuse. Today this beautifully restored historic house museum provides the perfect setting for visitors to acquaint themselves with the attributes of the 19 th century. The Friends of "R" House invite you come to the Rengstorff House and experience one of a kind exhibits, living history programs, memorable holiday events, and much more.

Find us on Facebook and check our calendar often so you are assured not to miss a thing. Complimentary docent tours are held throughout the year on Sundays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays and are given by Mountain View Parks and Recreation docent volunteers. Tour times are subject to change without notice. Donations are always welcome and proceeds go to the Friends of "R" House to further our educational mission. The Rengstorff House is located inside picturesque Shoreline at Mountain View.
