The Center for Culver History seeks to preserve and disseminate the history of Culver, Lake Maxinkuckee, and the Culver Military Academy. We do this through permanent and rotating exhibits on subjects ranging from Culver’s railroads, town businesses, and the Potawatomie Indians. In addition, through our research center, we provide access to an array of historic town documents, photographs, yearbooks, and other sources, for those interested in researching local or family history. We also seek to collect artifacts and stories related to Culver history from residents. Currently, Antiquarian news and historical feature articles are published in the Culver Citizen, which AHS members receive as part of their membership.
The Center for Culver History is currently seeking interested volunteers to fill a variety of positions. We are seeking volunteers who could commit to a regular time to come in, for a few hours every week or so. However, we also welcome one-time volunteers for special events, such as Taste of Culver and the Culver Film Festival, or to fill in on special volunteer days. Our top summer volunteer priorities are in seeking help with our two grant projects: the digitization project and the film project, and in recruiting members to join our strategic planning committee. If you would like more information about any of these opportunities, please contact email@example.com.
You will need to be computer literate and have familiarity with databases or willingness to learn how to operate our system (Past Perfect). Job responsibilities include keeping track of donations, printing thank you letters, and entering donation information into our online system.
Gift Shop Manager
We are currently seeking a business-savvy Associate for our museum gift shop. Responsibilities would include publicizing our items through the web and community outreach to local businesses, researching and purchasing new items, republishing out-of-print historical books, and launching an online website to sell our products.
The exhibit designer would aid in the construction and research of exhibits. No previous experience is necessary, beyond a familiarity with Culver history and/or ability to research and write for the public.
In addition to the above positions, volunteers are welcome at any time to work on a wide variety of projects, under the supervision of museum staff. These projects include scanning and historic photographs and yearbooks, assissting patrons with research, digitizing interviews, conducting interviews, assisting in exhibit design, and helping as needed throughout the museum.
Special thanks to Jeannette Geiseilman who has been assisting the digitization project this fall, as well organizing and helping out as needed!
