Get Switched On! To Volunteer Opportunities at Hearthstone

Hearthstone Historic House is always looking for people who are interested in learning new things, meeting other people and having a good time. At Hearthstone we have a lot of exciting opportunities for volunteers.

Tour Guide: Join our fabulous team of tour guides and learn more about the history of Appleton, the Victorian era and technology. Work with adults and children as you lead them through the past into an exciting time in American history.

Guest Services: Become a greeter and help us welcome people into the past and work in the lower level Hydro-adventure center and gift shop helping guests have a great museum experience.


Project Volunteer: Hearthstone is made up of self-directed volunteer teams who work together on every aspect of running an historical house museum. We have opportunities on our marketing, building and grounds, curation and research, fund raising, educational outreach, and special events teams. Let us know what your interests are, and we can find a place for you!

Board Member: Hearthstone Historic House Museum is seeking candidates for its Board of Directors. The board is responsible for strategic planning, fiscal oversight, fundraising and sitting on one committee of interest, which we call a cabinet. Cabinets include Finance, Fundraising, Marketing, Historical Research, Tours and Education, Special Events and Building and Grounds. Board terms are three years. The board meets once a month.
