Description

MCHA has become a multi-faceted organization comprised of our Museum, Research Library & Archives and five Historic House Museums. Our exhibits, lectures ,and special events help us to provide a variety of opportunities for people of all ages to engage in learning about and appreciating the interesting history and cultural heritage of our unique area.

Beginning on Saturday, October 23, Marlpit Hall in Middletown, NJ opens with a semi-permanent exhibit, "Beneath the Floorboards: Whispers of the Enslaved at Marlpit Hall." This exhibition reinterprets this colonial-era historic house to include the stories of the enslaved African Americans who once resided there. We are actively seeking docents interested in supporting this exhibit and other educational programs at MCHA. Learn more at https://www.monmouthhistory.org/beneath-the-floorboards.

Additional educational programs are offered at each Historic House Museum, which includes guided tours by docents. Volunteers are needed to staff our Historic House Museums on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. Training and support are provided for these positions.

Volunteer hours are at your discretion and contingent on the projects that interest you, ranging from once or twice a year to every week. The Association staff is flexible and willing to work with your schedule to find the ideal situation for each volunteer.
