Frequently Asked Questions

Why does the Historical Society need my help?
The Historical Society of the Somerset Hills has a small staff
and the mission is challenging. Because we preserve and interpret
more than 200 years of history, the task is far more manageable
(and fun!) with the involvement and support of community members.
What if I have the interest, but not the skills or knowledge?
We want your volunteer experience to be as rewarding to you as
it is for the Society. Training is provided for all volunteer
How much time must I commit?
The amount of time you volunteer depends upon the type of position
you choose, as well as the time you have available. Museum Docents
are asked to sign up for a shift once every week or two weeks.
Other positions, such as Office, Collections, Archives or Research
Assistants, have a great deal of flexibility. Still others, such
as hospitality committee volunteers are needed only a couple of
times a year.
What are some advantages of volunteering?
All of our volunteers receive invitations to all events, discounts
on out-of-town tours and in the Museum , and our newsletter. You
can also expect to meet interesting people and learn more about
our areas history.
