The Banner House Museum would not exist without volunteers!
Volunteers raised the funds and purchased the Banner house, then renovated it, turning it into a museum with donated period items. Volunteers decorated the rooms, landscaped the yard, and trained to be docents--to guide visitors through our history with tours and demonstrations.
Docent training is provided periodically for
anyone interested in leading museum tours.
Docents must be comfortable in dealing with
and committed to
learning more about this area's history and
families. Docents must be available a minimum of
3 hours a week. Community outreach events provide additional volunteer opportunities.
