Living History Volunteers

Ways to Participate!

Volunteers help in many, many ways at the museum. Here is a list of how you may want to assist us in providing history education and preservation to our community.

Living History Volunteers

Join this elite group of volunteers who belong to our Living History Society, these volunteers bring history alive by dressing in period clothing and interpreting life as it was in the late 1800s and early 1900s. In addition to our adult program, we also have a Jr. Interpreter program for children…

Junior Interpreter Program

Midway Junior Interpreters

Junior Interpreters help bring the Victorian Village to life by costumed interaction as Village youth of the period. This unique program is geared for ages 12-17 and is an excellent opportunity to discover the past while helping in the present. Whether you're interested in acting or history, this is a great way to become involved.

Please email Brandi at juniors@midwayvillage.com to find our next meeting date. All juniors will fill out an application. Parents must attend their first meeting. There is also a fee for each applicant, which goes towards costuming and supplies.
