The Dudley Farm Museum (www.DudleyFarm.com), an agricultural history museum in Guilford, Connecticut, reflects agricultural life common to the area during the late 19th-century. The mission is “To preserve, restore, and operate the farm as an historical, educational, and recreational resource, serving the general public as a museum, education center, and recreational park.” A new Interpretative Plan for the 10 ½ acre campus and restoration of the Farm’s 1840’s barn complex has been recently completed. The Museum seeks an individual to assist with implementing this Plan, cataloging farm artifacts and planning displays. The selected candidate will work with Museum staff and other volunteers, as well as use PastPerfect software. This is an opportunity to work with museum artifacts, interact with the other four historical museums in the town, meet other volunteers with similar interests, and learn something new each day. Training provided. Attention to detail, patience, teamwork skills, and interest in farm life and 19th-century history are desirable qualities. The chosen individual must possess the ability to work independently on one's own initiative and as a teammate. Work will be conducted in the museum office and outside in the barns and sheds on the museum grounds. Literacy in Microsoft Office is required. Prospective applicants should be aware that this Internship is an unpaid, volunteer position, and may require irregular hours. Because public transportation does not service the area, a car is a must. Please forward letters of interest to firstname.lastname@example.org.
