Click to view larger image.Volunteering at the 1820 Col. Benjamin Stephenson House is a fun, rewarding, and interactive experience. Our goal is to provide a quality, educational experience for our guests as well as a fun opportunity for our staff and volunteers. We all learn in different ways. Experiencing “the past” first-hand makes any learning experience more exciting.

Volunteers are the backbone of our organization; without them we would not be able to function. There are many areas where you can help.
