Become a Volunteer

Morris County Historical Society’s projects, programs, and activities would not be possible without the time and talents of our volunteers. A diverse group of people who give tours of Acorn Hall and assist behind the scenes, our volunteers range in age from college students to senior citizens. Some give time weekly, some monthly, and some just a few times a year for special events. We tailor the opportunities to each individual to ensure the best fit.

Come join us! If you are interested in volunteering, send a completed application form to
