The Marblehead Historical Commission is looking for several volunteers to help the Commission achieve its mission. Volunteers are needed to assist with archiving, to manage the Abbot Hall Gift Shop finances, to staff the Gift Shop, to work as Maritime Room docents, to work on educational material such as brochures, and to lead historic preservation planning efforts. An interest in Marblehead’s history and a familiarity with computers are helpful for archival and educational work. The Collections Manager and other Commission members will provide training as needed. If you are interested in learning more, please contact Wayne Butler, Eleanor Rhoades or Chris Johnston at the Commission’s Abbot Hall office at 781-639-3425.
The Commission’s mission is to identify, preserve and protect Marblehead's historical assets – its places, artifacts and stories, while making these accessible to all. We want to educate the public about and publicize Marblehead's proud history. We also want to work with other organizations to help achieve our mission. We fulfill our legally required obligations per Mass. General Laws Chapter 40, Section 8d by working with the state Historical Commission and State Archeologist.
