Historic House Volunteer
ORGANIZATION: National Park Service
Please visit the new page to apply.
Saratoga National Historical Park contains two historic houses which are open to the public on a seasonal basis. The Neilson House (built c.1776) is located on the Battlefield Tour Road at stop number 2. The Schuyler House (built 1777) is in modern day Schuylerville, NY, about 9 miles north of the Battlefield. Both houses possess complex stories which help us develop a deeper understanding of the Battles of Saratoga, the American Revolution, and the United States.
Historic House Volunteers play a key role in welcoming visitors to these sites and helping them understand the events which took place there.
As a representative of the National Park Service, volunteers are held to the same standards and rules as NPS staff. Volunteers will be provided with clothing showing their status as volunteers. They will be expected to provide their own pants and closed toed shoes.
Schedules are created by the Volunteer Coordinator on a periodic basis throughout the year. If you can’t make a scheduled day, please contact the Volunteer Coordinator as soon as possible.
