History Lovers! We are in need of volunteers for a variety of tasks.  You can become involved in our mission of keeping Kent County history! Some of our ongoing volunteer opportunities include:

Docent at the Geddes-Piper House: You don’t have to know about Kent County history to be a regular docent – you can learn as you go.  You just have to enjoy meeting people of all types, and welcoming them to the Historical Society.

Tour guides:  Do you enjoy learning history and telling stories?  You might enjoy being a tour guide for either regular walking tours we offer, or for our fall Ghost Walk of Historic Chestertown. 

Library tasks: We are in need of all library skill levels, from cataloging (easier than you may think, but does require computer skills) to indexing serials and publications, to clipping articles.

Genealogists

Cemetary research: Our volunteers are updating cemetery records and we could use more assistance in this effort.

Research:  If you have experience in conducting research, we are always in need of qualified volunteers to explore and document information on various topics.

Book & Map sales: keeping track of inventories and sales.

Clerical tasks

Special events and programs: planning and assistance.

Project Coordinators: For those who have experience and time to take on project management, we are in need of a coordinator for an oral history project.

Exhibit planners

Outreach: volunteers to “man” a table for the Society at events.

Or, think of a project of your own that you would like to pursue!  Please call Diane Daniels at 410-778-3499, or email director@kentcountyhistory.org
