Find YOUR place in Duxbury’s History

Hundreds of volunteers work throughout the year to make the DRHS a success. Some volunteer only an hour or two; others are among our most trusted contributors.


Current Volunteer Needs:

  • Event help: volunteers are needed for the Duxbury Maritime Festival & Tavern Night on Saturday, October 13, 2018. Set up, and break down help is particularly needed.
  • Tour Guides: for school tours, historic houses, and private tours. Training provided and no special expertise is necessary. Be an ambassador for the DRHS and the community!
