The Oliver Ellsworth Homestead has many opportunities for volunteers.  While most volunteers at the Homestead are members of the Daughters of the American Revolution, we encourage members of our community, young or retired, students or professionals, to get involved.

Volunteer opportunities can range from gardening, supporting special events and activities, to helping with maintenance activities like painting and minor carpentry projects.

If you have special talents, like writing, historic research, or fund-raising, we welcome you as well!

Please contact The Homestead to discuss how to get involved.
