Membership & Volunteer

The Thompson Historical Society projects and events need volunteers of all ages.

Volunteer Oportunities

Our mission is to preserve and celebrate the history of Thompson’s 10 villages: East Thompson, Fabyan, Grosvenordale, Mechanicsville, North Grosvenordale, Quadic, Quinebaug, West Thompson, Wilsonville and Thompson Hill.

With more than 325 years of Colonial history and many more centuries of Native American traditions and folklore, we can use your help!

We actively seek volunteers for our museum shop, event planning, research projects, membership drives, artifacts preservation or digital archiving. This is an excellent opportunity to participate in your community, meet new friends, build technical and team work skills, and learn about the town’s past.
