Volunteer Pioneers

  In 2015, volunteers gave over 14,000 hours of their time to ensure that Lincoln Log Cabin was open and accessible to visitors from all 50 states and many other countries. Many opportunities are available to serve as a volunteer. Volunteers sew period clothing worn by our interpreters, portray 19th-century characters in the living history program, create unique gift items to sell in the gift shop, make sales in the gift shop, staff special events, work the gardens on both the Lincoln and Sargent farms, and help with the landscaping to maintain the beauty and accessibility of the site for visitors.  The Visitors Center, which is staffed entirely by volunteers, houses a museum, an exhibition gallery and auditorium, where a short video prepares visitors for their trip to the farm. The gift shop has period items of interest for purchase and is also managed and operated by volunteers.
