The Ticonderoga Historical Society has a position available for a graduate intern in public history, museum studies or a related field for the summer of 2020. The Society is housed within the Hancock House, a four-story historic house museum, open to the public.
The museum houses a collection of approximately 4,000 artifacts, 7,000 books and manuscripts, and other original materials relating to the history of the Lake Champlain Basin Region. In addition to its exhibit space, the Historical Society engages in an active plan of community outreach, programs and lectures.
The successful applicant is expected to work a rotation within all areas of the museum – visitor services, volunteers, exhibits, programs, conservation and the management (budgeting, non-profit compliance and board relations). The internship curriculum is intended to be a 10-week program, but can be structured for 8 to 12 weeks.
A stipend of $5,000 will be paid and housing assistance can be provided, if necessary. For consideration, submit a letter of interest and resume/CV via e-mail to email@example.com. More information about the Ticonderoga Historical Society is available on their website.
