Seeking Volunteers:

The 1876 Banwarth House and Museum hosts bi-weekly programs throughout the year. We are currently developing the schedule for 2014-2015. Would you or someone you know be interested in being a guest speaker for a Saturday afternoon lecture or maybe teach a hands-on class? 

This is a great opportunity to share your passion! We would like to keep the subjects historical and relevant to our time period (Victorian Era into the 1950s). Just send us an email and we will be sure to work you into the schedule! ​​
