Welcome to HistoriCorps

We are a nonprofit organization that provides volunteers, students and veterans of all skill levels with a hands-on experience preserving historic structures on public lands across America. Volunteers and students work with HistoriCorps field staff to learn preservation skills and put those skills to work saving historic places that have fallen into disrepair.

HistoriCorps works to ensure America’s cultural and historical sites exist for generations to come. Join us on a project!

This week's volunteer spotlight is on Althea Wunderler-Selby! Althea is a recent graduate from Vermont’s Green Mountain College. She just discovered HistoriCorps this year and enjoyed her first experience at the Rourke Ranch project so much that she signed up for 2 more projects! The 22-year-old has done quite a bit of traveling internationally and loves the appeal of all the US travel she can do with HistoriCorps. Learn more about Althea on HistoriCorps' blog!
