Volunteering

Volunteers are the cornerstone of the Des Moines County Historical Society. Volunteer opportunities exist in all three museums. Volunteers greet visitors during open hours, provide assistance with collections and exhibits and assist with programs and events.  Volunteers are of all ages and walks of life, some have vast experience with the history of Des Moines County and some just enjoy the social experience of talking to visitors from all over the world who come through the museums. If you are interested in volunteering please contact our Volunteer Coordinator, Evelyn Ainsworth at 319-752-7449 or eainsworth@dmchs.org.
