The Old Saybrook Historical Society is an all-volunteer organization.
Do you like history, genealogy, being with people or all of the above? If so, you are invited to contribute your valuable time and energies and/or ideas to our all-volunteer organization. You are needed! Opportunities are for annual events or on-going on a weekly basis. Even though we have many dedicated people there is always room for more.
Some of the many opportunities available:
- Archives – Computer Skills
Cataloging, data entry, tech help with website and computer network, research and writing articles for newsletter, historical and genealogical research for visitors as well as on-line queries, transcribing, and more. The Archives and Library are open year round on Tuesday and Thursday mornings 9-12, or by appointment.
- Ways and Means – Fundraising
- House Tour Guide
The Garden Committee continues to create a place of beauty to frame the Hart House and Archives Building. Plan, promote and maintain colonial plantings of the period 1767-1820. The “Bottoms-Up Club” meets one morning a week from April (weather permitting) through October. The Garden Committee always needs new gardeners!
