Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
The mission of the HSDC is to collect, preserve, exhibit, publish, and promote interest in the history of Dauphin County for the education, enjoyment, and benefit of the public.
A vital part of the Society's mission is to make historical information about Dauphin County available to the public. Our research facilities are located behind the Mansion in the Society Office. In addition to our library research room, we maintain separate photograph and manuscript archives, which have been growing in size for over 100 years.
The history of the Mansion is one of change for both its ownership and architecture. The Mansion has undergone numerous additions and significant renovations since it was first constructed in 1766. It has had no fewer than eight owners before the Society first called it home in 1941. In 1976 the Mansion was designated a National Historic Landmark. We offer tours of the Mansion from April 1st to December 23rd.
Local educators are very fortunate to have a historical site in Central Pennsylvania that spans the wide time period from Colonial era to the Civil War. The Historical Society of Dauphin County provides exciting and interactive elementary education programs at the Mansion. The programs are intended for students from third to fifth grade, and are designed to permit students to return year after year and experience something new and exciting each time they visit.
