Historic Cherry Hill recruits volunteer guides to lead tours of the historic house museum in 2024
Historic Cherry Hill is looking for individuals interested in local history to join as volunteer guides for the 2024 tour season. Guide training will begin on-site February 2024 and will take place roughly every other Thursday evening through April.
Share the story of how the last two generations at Cherry Hill responded to social, economic, and personal change at the turn of the 20th century. This social history tour addresses such topics as immigration, women’s suffrage, American identity, and the roots of prejudice.
Interested volunteers will be fully trained by Historic Cherry Hill staff members and guest speakers. Guides can expect to commit to 6-10 hours per month from February to November of
2024, with the majority of public tours occurring between June and August.
Historic Cherry Hill tells a story of America through the lives and experiences of five generations of one Albany, New York household. The historic house museum is located at 523 ½ South Pearl St., Albany, NY 12202.
Historic Cherry Hill is an equal opportunity institution. Please note that guides walk up and down two flights of stairs during the tour, and may be on their feet for prolonged periods of time.
