Meet the Team
Margaret Rice and Bettianne Goetz volunteers at THS booth of the McMenamins Edgefield concerts.
The Troutdale Historical Society runs on volunteer power. We have a tremendous group of volunteers that keep three museums open and maintained; curators who keep track of a large collection of photographs and artifacts; event coordinators who plan our events down to the finest details; and maintenance workers who come running at a moment's notice to make needed repairs. We are very fortunate to have them and appreciate every hour spent on our behalf. In 2016, over 2000 hours were donated just from the museum docents.
If you are interested in joining our team of volunteers, give us a call (503)-661-2164. No experience necessary.
