Fun, Flexible Schedules, Social Interactions, Resume Building Experiences...


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. 

Please visit Stephenson House Volunteer site to find updates on the latest activities, schedules and future events for house volunteers.
