Other ongoing projects are the moving and reconstruction of an eighteenth century log barn in the museum’s backyard, the reenactment of a local Revolutionary battle, the involvement of school children in learning about history, and an expansive oral history project. In the museum, volunteers are needed to help with exhibit receptions, office work, collections, and research. An active Fairfield County Historical Association
is always looking for new members.
The Fairfield County Genealogical Research Room, the collection having been established by volunteers associated with the Daughters of the American Revolution in the 1960s and 1970s, has recently been returned from an offsite location to the museum premises. Volunteers are often available to assist family researchers with the collected paper files, published volumes, microfilm records, etc. As staffing by volunteers is not yet regular, it is best to call the museum or contact firstname.lastname@example.org
for scheduling a research visit (803-635-9811). The collection is available during museum visitation hours Tuesdays through Friday. Inquiries can also be sent to email@example.com
. An active Fairfield County Genealogy Society
supplies volunteers to assist researchers, maintain the library collection and various projects. (see useful links)
