Join our team of volunteers and history enthusiasts. Volunteers are at the heart of everything we do at the Grant County Historical Society. We welcome volunteers of all ages and skills.

A recent technology grant of $10,000 has allowed us to make available 11 new workstations, book and document scanners, and more, thanks to the Charles “Sonny” Tiedeman Foundation, part of the Lancaster Community Fund.

Please call us at 608-723-4925 or email historicalsociety@tds.net to discuss current volunteer opportunities.
