Volunteer and Internship Opportunities

Narramissic Interpreter
Help history come alive at a spectacular 19th-century New England hill farm by providing tours and hospitality for visitors to Narramissic, the Bridgton Historical Society’s historic farmstead.  Help staff the house during regular open hours in July and August. Duties include conducting guided tours of the house and outbuildings, performing light housekeeping and maintenance duties, assisting with workshops, special events, and other projects. We can structure this as an undergraduate or graduate internship with a special project tailored to your interests and skills and the society's needs. Unfortunately, a stipend is not available this year. The house is open July and August, Thursday-Saturday from 1-4, but specific days worked can be somewhat flexible.
