Make a Difference

The success of Heritage Square and the Rosson House Museum depends on the hard work of volunteers. Our volunteers work in many areas including – leading tours for the public, assisting with field trips, working in the gift shop, helping with garden maintenance, and staffing special events. Other volunteer opportunities are available and corporate group volunteers are always welcome for special projects.
