The Banner House Museum would not exist without volunteers!
Volunteers raised the funds and purchased the Banner house, then renovated it, turning it into a museum with donated period items from our area. Volunteers decorated the rooms, landscaped the yard, and trained to be docents to guide visitors through our history with tours and demonstrations.
Docent training is provided periodically for anyone interested in leading museum tours. Docents should be comfortable speaking to tour groups and committed to learning more about this area’s history and families. Community outreach events provide additional opportunities for docents to share their knowledge. Minimum 4 hours per week time commitment required
Do you know a young person who likes history? Junior Docents attend our special events to demonstrate and lead other children in heritage activitie
