There are many volunteer opportunities available for those wishing to share Ottawa County’s fascinating history.


The Society’s “Page & Stage Oral History Project” is open to anyone wishing to research various topics to be compiled as part of the current volume being produced. The meetings are held the 2nd Tuesday of every month at 1:00 p.m. at the Ida Rupp Library in Port Clinton.

Docents & Greeters:

During the summer season the Wolcott Keeper’s House provides tours in the House and offers merchandise for sale in the adjoining Annex. Docents and greeters are needed for the House and Annex throughout the season. Light gardening opportunities are also available.

Event Assistance:

There are a number of activities and events held at the Keeper’s House throughout the season requiring volunteer assistance including the hearth cooking events, Civil War enactment, and the mobile perch-wagon sales event. Also, the Keeper’s House is open as part of the fall festival on the Marblehead peninsula. Finally, at Christmas there is a Holiday Open-House at the Keeper’s House.
