Volunteer Opportunities

The Society welcomes members and the general community to participate more fully in the work and activities of the Historical Society. The range of involvement goes from a single project to commitment as a committee chair. Our volunteers are full year or seasonal, weekly or occasional.

School Programs

When the Historical Museum opened in 2014 the Board of Directors began to plan ways to become an asset to the Northland Pines School District. The program began with an annual visit by each 4th grade class in the district - the fourth grade is the year children study Wisconsin history.
