For the Mosby Heritage Area Association's programs and activities to support our "preservation through education" mission, we rely on volunteers. As a volunteer, your work is invaluable and, as you'll discover, with volunteering comes camaraderie and the satisfaction of knowing your contribution matters.

Among the ways you can help the organization are:

Board officers and volunteers Henry Plaster, Preservation Committee chair, and Harriett Condon, Nominating Committee chair

The Mosby Heritage Area Interpretive Group is the volunteer interpretive arm of the Heritage Area. The group puts on four to six Legends by Lanternlight programs at historic sites around the Heritage Area, all conducted in period dress and in the first person. Members also assist with our student field trips and other programming when needed. Our volunteers are not actors or re-enactors (although a few are), but they are all passionate about sharing the region's history with others. If you are interested in training to interpret, becoming an active member, or helping with the logistics of the programming, please fill out the application below, print it out, and mail it to us at P.O. Box 1497, Middleburg, VA 20118 or email it to rgillespie@mosbyheritagearea.org

All Mosby Heritage Area volunteers receive free admission to fundraising events when volunteering for an event.  Volunteers are recognized for their work at an annual Volunteer Gathering.   

To become a volunteer contact the Mosby Heritage Area Association office at 540-687-6681 to talk to staff, or fill out the Volunteer Application.
