The Cutchogue-New Suffolk Historical Council was formed in 1960 to preserve the history of our community by creating a Village Green on which structures and objects are preserved and exhibited, and programs are presented that encourage appreciation for local history. The Historical Council is a non-profit, membership organization that depends upon volunteers to assist in its activities throughout the year.
The following is a sampling of the many volunteer opportunities offered by the Cutchogue-New Suffolk Historical Council:
- Tour Guides (Docents) are needed to guide visitors and interpret the landmark structures and collections exhibited on the Village Green. Training is provided.
- Special Events. Assistance is required to set up, staff and take down events and public programs offered throughout the year. Many hands make light work!
- Gift Shop. Managing the shop located in the Carriage House includes greeting visitors, interacting with patrons between tours, and transacting sales. All profits support the preservation of the Village Green.
- Old Cutchogue Burying Ground, located a mile east of the Village Green. Annual workshops and other hands-on activities offer volunteers the opportunity to assist in the preservation of this historic and sacred site.
For information about these and other volunteer opportunities, call the Cutchogue-New Suffolk Historical Council at (631) 734-7122, write to us at: PO Box 714, Cutchogue, NY 11935, or email the director, Zach Studenroth.
