AHS is fueled by volunteer energy. We have opportunities for everyone who has an interest in history or who wants to become more involved in their community. These are just a few examples, to learn more, email the AHS Volunteer Coordinator:  RobertWhite7@aol.com


  • Docent at the Arlington Historical Museum: once a month on a Wednesday, Saturday, or Sunday afternoon or as often as you want. We’ll pair you with another docent to learn the ropes.
  • Garden: Use your “green thumb” to develop or maintain gardens at the Arlington Historical Museum or the Ball-Sellers House.
  • Social Media: AHS has an active Facebook page, a newly designed website, and a desire to be on Twitter. If you like to communicate this way, we need you and we have lots of fascinating content. Do as much as you want and work with a team.
  • Handyman: We have many small jobs for someone who is handy or is a jack-of-all-trades. This individual can have a big impact on preserving and maintaining our historic properties.
  • Artifact Research: The Ball-Sellers House has completed an archaeological dig and now we are cleaning, researching, and reassembling the items we unearthed. Email: BSH@arlingtonhistoricalsociety.org
  • Write a historical article for the annual Arlington Historical Magazine.  To learn more: email the editor at gross_max@hotmail.com.
  • Administrative Help: Occasional help is needed with envelope stuffing, newsletter mailings, or magazine mailings. We work in small groups as needed at the Arlington Historical Museum on a Saturday or Sunday afternoon.
  • Outreach: Help staff the Arlington Historical Society table at neighborhood events throughout the year and at the county fair in August.  You’ll work with a fellow volunteer for a few hours handing out materials, selling books, and helping answer questions.
