    Historic Brattonsville seeks a dynamic, team-oriented, and highly motivated intern interested in working with a small staff dedicated to preserving and presenting the history of the Carolina Piedmont and this Revolutionary War site as portrayed through the structures, landscape, and stories of the Brattonsville community.

    The next Historic Interpretation Intern will work collaboratively with current interpretation staff to research and develop interpretive narratives that share the story of the Bratton community with visitors, and maintain the living history farm. They will also conceptualize and present an original interpretive activity that coincides with Brattonsville’s mission. This internship is perfect for students interested in interacting with historic site guests on a daily basis, and seeing first-hand the process interpreters engage in when developing historical programming for such a unique site.

    Responsibilities:

    • ·         Lead relevant interpretive activities during the week and weekend, including site tours, historic skill demonstrations, and special events.
    • ·         Shadow staff members during paid tours, school groups, and volunteer training sessions.
    • ·         Research, design, and present an interpretive activity to be demonstrated at least twice during the week, and on weekends.

    Prerequisites:

    • ·         Must be at least eighteen (18) years old.
    • ·         Must be currently enrolled in a post-secondary academic institution.
    • ·         Must have reliable transportation to and from Historic Brattonsville if not using site housing.
    • ·         Must be able to participate physically in on-site interpretive activities in a wide variety of temperatures and weather conditions, which may include farm work, guided tours, manual labor, and historic skill demonstrations.

    Compensation: None.

    Possible Housing: Intern Cottage (may share the house with the Intern of Historic Preservation)

    Schedule: Can be determined by the intern’s availability; must meet academic requirements.

    Application Process:

    • ·         Submit resume or CV, cover letter, and two (2) letters of recommendation (academic or professional references only) to Johanna Addison by Friday, April 10.
    • ·         Complete the internship application through the Culture and Heritage Museum’s website (https://www.volgistics.com/ex/portal.dll/ap?AP=278879810) by Friday, April 10.
