History Lovers! We are in need of volunteers for a variety of tasks.  You can become involved in our mission of keeping Kent County history! Some of our ongoing volunteer opportunities include:

Docent at the Geddes-Piper House: You don’t have to know about Kent County history to be a regular docent – you can learn as you go.  You just have to enjoy meeting people of all types, and welcoming them to the Historical Society.

Tour guides:  Do you enjoy learning history and telling stories?  You might enjoy being a tour guide for either regular walking tours we offer, or for our fall Ghost Walk of Historic Chestertown. 

Library tasks: We are in need of all library skill levels, from cataloging (easier than you may think, but does require computer skills) to indexing serials and publications, to clipping articles.


Cemetary research: Our volunteers are updating cemetery records and we could use more assistance in this effort.

Research:  If you have experience in conducting research, we are always in need of qualified volunteers to explore and document information on various topics.

Book & Map sales: keeping track of inventories and sales.

Clerical tasks

Special events and programs: planning and assistance.

Project Coordinators: For those who have experience and time to take on project management, we are in need of a coordinator for an oral history project.

Exhibit planners

Outreach: volunteers to “man” a table for the Society at events.

Or, think of a project of your own that you would like to pursue!  Please call Diane Daniels at 410-778-3499, or email director@kentcountyhistory.org
