Do you have a passion for Billing’s history, architecture, fundraising, or museums in general?
The Moss Mansion, a historic home over 100 years old right in the heart of Billings, Montana, recruits dedicated volunteers to help “bring history to life” in a variety of roles.
The Moss Mansion recruits volunteers to help share the history of the mansion and the Moss family to visitors of all ages and from around the world through a one hour guided tour. Trained in the history of the family and the home, Docents are a vital link between the history of the Moss Mansion and its visitors. Training is provided to ensure every Docent knows the history behind the Moss Mansion.
Visitor Service Volunteers
Another vital link between the history of the Moss and its visitors are the Visitor Service Volunteers. These volunteers greet visitors as they arrive, take admission fees, work in the gift shop, share the history of the artifacts displayed around the entrance while visitors wait for their tour, and assist in answering the phones.
Research Volunteers are needed to work with curatorial and education staff to delve into topics related to the Moss Mansion. Possible topics include former occupants of the home, objects in collections, archival material for preservation, and history of the property.
Maintenance and facilities volunteers are very important in the preservation and presentation of the mansion. They will assist staff on clean-up of the house and grounds, set up and take down for a variety of events, and assist in weatherizing the home in various forms during certain seasons.
Garden Volunteers help to maintain the lush gardens and grounds of the Moss Mansion. They work alongside the Moss Mansion’s master gardeners in order to ensure that the grounds are pristine in their appearance. Garden Volunteers may be seasonal based on garden needs.
