Volunteers keep the Gordon House running and flourishing.
Here are some ways you can help out.
We'd love to see you at our house!
Tour Guide Lead tours of the only Frank Lloyd Wright building in Oregon, and the only one open to tours in the Pacific Northwest. We'll train you! All we require is that you have a willingness to learn, enjoy being around people and spend about 3.5 hours per shift. Experience working with the public and some level of public speaking is nice but not necessary. Getting to meet folks from all over the world, is just one of the perks!
Gardening Just like your home, our yard benefits from continuous care and maintenance. This includes planting, trimming, pruning, weeding, raking, fertilizing and more. There's always something to keep you busy.
Cataloguing We consistently have filing, storage, recording, and archiving that needs attention. Some on-the-"job" training will give you all the experience you need to do it.
Museum Library The Gordon House Library is an important collection that would benefit from the attention of a real book lover. We receive new, wonderful books to add to our growing collection. These need to be recorded, plated, catalogues, and displayed or safely stored.
Architecture in Schools The Gordon House is an educator's resource center for materials and tours that support K-12 core curriculum in the Silver Falls Public School District and other Oregon schools. To supplement their studies, college and university students regularly tour the house. Volunteers on our Education Committe support this vital role.
Special Event Assistance Great for those who eschew a regular schedule, our special private and public events need extra hands on deck to help with the many tasks of pulling off a major event, both during and prior to the event.
Museum Collections In addition to our book collection, we have various types of art and documents that need appropriate care, display, storage and preservation given by a interested volunteer.
And more . . .
Don’t think you have the time?
We don’t need much of your time. Once a week, or once a month, or less for special event volunteers—is all it takes. We can tailor the work to your time and availability.
Don’t see a task you’d like?
What’s your area of interest? If the list of opportunities doesn’t fit your expertise or satisfy your urge to volunteer, talk with us. We can help find a niche for you, doing something you enjoy while helping to preserve America’s architectural history in Oregon.
Don’t like to work alone?
Bring a friend or a family member, or gather up your group or club to work on a project together. Many hands make light work and more fun.
