Narramissic Summer Internship

Mid-June – August (exact dates are negotiable)

25 hours per week

$1,500 Stipend plus living quarters

Bridgton Historical Society has a graduate or undergraduate-level internship available for the summer of 2014 at Narramissic, the Peabody-Fitch farm in South Bridgton.  The Narramissic Summer Intern is responsible for staffing the house during regular open hours in July and August. Duties include conducting guided tours, performing light housekeeping and maintenance, and assisting with workshops and events. Interns are also expected to undertake a special project that fits with institutional needs and the intern’s interests and skills. Projects typically involve activities such as cataloging a portion of the collection, or researching and designing a program or exhibit.

Narramissic is in a remote location, situated on approximately 25 acres of fields, with spectacular mountain views.  It includes a house, built in 1797, a barn, and a workshop with a functioning, restored, blacksmith’s forge. Based on extensive knowledge of the family’s activities and a remarkably intact collection, the house is furnished to reflect life in the 1850s on a New England hill farm.
