With two historical house museums to work in there are numerous ways to volunteer. Either inside or outside in the gardens/grounds. This Historical Society is run by all volunteers. There are no paid folks. Come and join the fun. Be a docent on tour days, catalog artifacts, help make exhibits, write for grants, file, etc. Everyone here are super friendly and helpful.

There are volunteer opportunities for most ages. The people of FRWHS are very friendly and helpful. One can volunteer inside the museums as a docent or volunteer outside in the gardens.
