Overholser Mansion to Host Volunteer Training on May 21

OKLAHOMA CITY — The Henry and Anna Overholser Mansion, in partnership with Preservation Oklahoma, will host a volunteer training day on Saturday, May 21, 2022, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Have you ever wanted to give tours of a historic house museum? Maybe giving tours is not your cup of tea, but helping with maintaining the splendor of a historic home is more your speed. Or perhaps you would prefer to volunteer for events. This program will cover a number of options for volunteer opportunities, including giving tours, assisting with various maintenance activities and possibilities to volunteer for special events.

Prospective volunteers will learn the history and basic tour guidelines for the 1903 Henry and Anna Overholser Mansion, located at 405 NW 15th St. in Oklahoma City. Beginning at 10 a.m., the morning session will introduce best practices and requirements for volunteering. Lunch will be provided. After lunch, participants will tour the home with Museum Coordinator Lisa Escalon. 

Please sign up by May 17 at www.overholsermansion.org/volunteer-training. For more information, please contact Chantry Banks, Preservation Oklahoma executive eirector, at director@preservationok.org or 405-525-5325.
