Volunteers Needed: The Buttonwoods Museum/Haverhill Historical Society is looking for volunteers to conduct tours of the museum during the tourist season, June through October. From a historic site overlooking the Merrimack River, the Buttonwoods tells the story of life in the Merrimack Valley from Native American Indian settlements through today. The museum includes three historic structures - the Duncan House, the John Ward House and Daniel Hunkins Shoe Shop. Volunteers are asked to devote two to four hours per week. More information is available from Jan Williams at 978-374-4626 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Visit online at haverhillhistory.org.
