27 May 2015 10:06 AM | Anonymous member

The Washburn-Norlands Living History Center in Livermore is seeking additional paid staff to train as historical interpreters.

Teachers, actors, history lovers or anyone interested in dressing up in period clothes and pretending to be someone else should apply. Interpreters share history in a fun, humorous yet thought-provoking way with visitors of all ages, creating a memorable museum and farm experience.

The ideal candidate has an outgoing personality, with the ability to engage all types of audiences, especially school groups.  Norlands’ interpreters teach history by doing, using living history techniques to share accurate information about the historical buildings, the Washburn family, agricultural methods and the way people lived in the 1800s.

We are seeking people who are curious about the world, especially the 19th century and the remarkable Washburn family. All training is provided. This is an ideal position for someone looking for a flexible schedule.  This is a part-time position.  Hours worked per week depend on the season and as programs are scheduled.  April – June and September-October are the heavier-scheduled months.

To learn more or to apply, email a letter of interest and resume to Sheri Leahan, director, at  FMI: visit
