Volunteer Opportunities Available

Are you interested in history? Do you enjoy seeking out buried treasure? The Vernon County Historical Society has just what you need! Volunteers at the Historical Society are vital to our goal of preserving and sharing Vernon County's heritage.

There are many volunteer opportunities at the Vernon County Museum:

Do you enjoy research? Our volunteers often help us investigate historical topics.

More of an organizational type? We can always use help getting organized. Even if you just want to lend a helping hand once in a while, we have four historic buildings to clean.

We also need people to act a part in the annual Cemetery Walk, or lend a hand with special events such as the Strawberry Shortcake Social.
