The history of Ridgefield is kept alive by those here today.

Volunteering with the Ridgefield Historical Society is vital to our success — and it’s also interesting and fun.  To get involved — in either a leadership or ongoing role, or to support specific projects or events —  please contact us at 203-438-5821 or  info@ridgefieldhistoricalsociety.org. Training will be provided for each position.

Join our team!

Marketing & Communications: Help us get the word out across channels and to new audiences. We have plenty of  assignments both big and small, but all of them are interesting.  Always looking for expertise in new technologies and social media. 

Development & Fundraising: As a nonprofit organization, RHS relies on our members, donors, and funders to meet our mission. Work with us to develop new opportunities for engagement and support.  

Event Volunteers: Have a few hours every once in a while? RHS hosts lectures, parties, and other events and can always use some extra sets of hands. 

Buildings & Grounds Assistance: Seeking outdoor and historic home enthusiasts who don’t mind getting their hands dirty—landscaping, removing debris, and fixing whatever arises! Work with our Buildings & Grounds Committee to keep both the Scott House and the Peter Parley Schoolhouse shipshape.

Archival Assistant: Work under the guidance of the Archives Committee to digitize and catalogue historic images and ephemera for our archive, preserving them for future generations.

Interns: The Ridgefield Historical Society offers a limited number of summer internships each year, and also works with high school interns all year long on specific projects and ongoing archival work.
