The 2024 Windsor House Tour will take place on Saturday, June 8. Stay tuned for more updates!

Volunteers Needed!

Friendly volunteers who enjoy meeting people are being sought to help with a special one-day event drawing hundreds to Windsor. Volunteer hosts are needed at each home to make visitors feel welcome, provide brief interpretation on interior architectural details and keep an eye on the homeowner’s furnishings and collectibles.

“Several volunteer hosts will be on duty in each home at all times, reporting to a head volunteer or liaison for each of the houses,” explains Ed Paquette, house tour chair. “The week before the tour, all volunteers will be invited to their assigned house to receive training and information about the home.”

Volunteers are asked to make a two-hour commitment as well as attend the training session. Shifts are short because many volunteers want the option of taking the tour themselves. We can accommodate groups of friends who want to volunteer together, so please share this request with friends and neighbors.

We offer all volunteers a FREE ticket to the house tour and an invitation to the Homeowner and Volunteer Appreciation After-Party at Windsor Historical Society from 4 -6 pm on Saturday, June 8, immediately following the house tour with music and refreshments.

The tour is a major fundraiser for the Society, supporting public programs for schoolchildren and adults and the operation of our historic houses, research library, and exhibition galleries. “Volunteers will have the satisfaction of knowing that they are supporting an active, community spirited museum and preservation organization in Connecticut’s oldest town,” notes Doug Shipman, Executive Director of Windsor Historical Society.

To volunteer, or for more information about the house tour, please contact Ed Paquette at 860-818-8024 or edpaq66@gmail.com.

We look forward to working with you!
