Volunteer Opportunities — Lend a Helping Hand

Arthurdale Heritage needs weekend tour guides for Saturdays and Sundays (12-4).   We will be having a tour guide training session Saturday,  29 Aug.  at 11am.   Please meet in the Center Hall.

Being a tour guide is fun and enables you to meet some very interesting people.   Last week,  we had visitors from as far away as the Ukraine.   Another tour guide met a woman who served as a Peace Corp volunteer in Bosnia during the 1992-95 war!

If you’d like to see what it is like to be a tour guide, please come to the training session this Saturday.   Email for more info:

Help Arthurdale Heritage do more to help others understand the value of this historic preservation project and to have fun at community events through:

  • serving as a summer tour guide on weekend days (we’ll gladly train you)
  • assisting with periodic fundraising dinners in a variety of ways
  • becoming a member of our working committees
  • serving on the event staff for WVU football and basketball games as part of the Arthurdale group
  • providing office staff support for ongoing projects

Call the Arthurdale Heritage office at 304-864-3959 Tuesday through Friday, noon to 4 p.m., and we’ll be happy to discuss your interest in lending a helping hand.
