The Morgan Log House has had strong volunteer support since the 1970s when it was saved from suburban development. Township officials and local leaders and residents raised funds and awareness of the historic house to allow for its 1973-1976 restoration. The house later opened as a historic house museum. Volunteers have been involved with events and interpreting the house for visitors for over 40 years. Volunteers range in age from students to seniors citizens with a wide background from nursing to education. Our annual events Dirty Attic, Creepy Cellar, Military Might, Tavern Night, Mayhem, and Candlelight tours have been local favorites that are strongly supported by our volunteers.
Volunteers are involved in many aspects of the museum including the gift shop, museum interpretations, behind-the-scenes of setting up and tearing down events, assisting with new exhibits and collections.
The museum has also had involvement with student internships and scouts. Students have worked with staff to scan old slides into the museum’s digital image collection, organize our library, and help us with our museum archives For several years, Boy Scouts have visited the site, taken tours, and completed their Eagle Award projects. These projects included completion of the front stone walkway, a side walkway, signage, painting, and a hops garden. We are currently working with the Eastern Pennsylvania Girl Scout Council to involve local Girl Scouts with the museum.
