The Skolfield-Whittier House
Parlor of the Skolfield-Whittier House, as it appears today

Tour guides are needed at the Skolfield-Whittier House, one of the Pejepscot History Center's two historic house museums. The Skolfield-Whittier home is furnished in largely Victorian style entirely in original artifacts from both the Skolfield & Whittier families ranging from the mid-1800s, into the 20th century.

As a Skolfield-Whittier house docent, you will have the opportunity to meet people from all over the world, with a variety of different interests. The house serves as an excellent example of Victorian architecture and is furnished with a range of the period's styles. Anyone interested in antiques, architecture, history, art, biology or shipbuilding will love this museum!

The Skolfield-Whittier House has tours Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays at 10am, 11:30am, 1pm, and 2:30pm from May 25th through October of 2023. Tours are approximately 1 hour long and volunteers typically take a 2-tour (am or pm) shift, once a week, but we are flexible. We are seeking new volunteers to begin training for our upcoming 2023 season.

All volunteers of the Pejepscot History Center receive benefits such as invitations to all PHC events, free admission to PHC museums, free research at the Pejepscot Research Center, discounts at the museum's gift shop, and a recognition party at the end of the season.

Mission Statement

Our mission is to collect, preserve, and interpret the history of Brunswick, Topsham, and Harpswell, Maine, and to share our diverse heritage for the enrichment of all--natives and tourists alike.

Description

The Pejepscot History Center shares the rich history of the mid-coast region with residents and tourists alike. PHC collects, preserves and interprets the history of Brunswick, Topsham, and Harpswell through educational programs, exhibitions, and museums.

Founded in 1888 as Pejepscot Historical Society, (now) Pejepscot History Center is the fourth oldest in the state of Maine. PHC was operated solely by volunteers for much of its existence. It now employs full-time and part-time staff, but still heavily relies on volunteers for its day-to-day operations.


PHC operates three museums: the Joshua L. Chamberlain Museum, the Skolfield-Whittier House, and the Pejepscot Museum. We provide guided tours, educational programs, historical resources and expertise. Additionally, we provide assistance with local history research.
