Volunteers are vital to our mission to preserve and share the history of Freeport.

Volunteer opportunities

Learn something new, keep current skills sharp, enjoy the camaraderie of other volunteers and join us as we keep Freeport’s fascinating history alive.

With two National Trust properties, extensive collections and an active schedule of public events and exhibits, Freeport Historical Society offers a range of interesting and varied volunteer opportunities.

Interested in volunteering? We’d love to hear from you!

We welcome volunteers of all ages throughout the year based on your schedule and interests. Some volunteers donate their time weekly, others for special events. When you apply to be a volunteer, we’ll find the best fit with your interests and our organizational needs. If you’re interested you can let us know by calling 207-865-3170 or visiting us in person at 45 Main St. Tuesday-Friday. We look forward to meeting you!
