Every year, more than 60 volunteers help the Tioga County Historical Society meet its mission and goals by donating in excess of 4,000 hours of their time to helping at the Museum. We greatly appreciate their dedication and all of their hard work.

Volunteers perform a variety of duties throughout the Museum. All the “behind the scenes” work at the museum, including genealogy and collections, are performed by hardworking volunteers.  Our volunteers are from diverse backgrounds and reflect the population of Tioga County. Learn more about volunteering below.
