Volunteer Information

by Nov 15, 2016

We love tour groups!

The Boone County Historical Society enjoys hosting group tours of all sorts. From scout troops to tour buses and antique car clubs, we can accommodate a variety of groups.


Currently, all of our museums are closed due to the Covid-19 pandemic. When we reopen, tours should be arranged well in advance. Contact us at info@bchsiowa.org or call 515-432-1907 and leave a message. Since the Center is not staffed regularly, emailed questions get answered more quickly.

Help us preserve Boone County History

Volunteers perform a broad range of duties across our museums. From greeting and assisting visitors at public programs and events, to providing baked goods for fundraisers, to grant writing or performing research, sorting and cataloging artifacts, serving food at events, doing marketing or fundraising, or conducting tours as a docent at the Mamie Doud Eisenhower Birthplace or the Boone History Center, volunteers work alongside Board members to further our mission of preserving Boone County’s history for everyone.

Each volunteer opportunity is different, with its own unique set of responsibilities, and therefore requiring its own unique mix of relevant skills and experience. No previous experience is required for many tasks, and prospective volunteers should be enthusiastic, flexible, and willing to learn new things.

We work with each valued volunteer to select a project and a schedule that works best for them. To learn more about volunteering, email admin@bchsiowa.org to find out how you can make a difference!
