Meet travelers from around the world that appreciate this world-class landmark! 

You can help the B. Harley Bradley House project team  by volunteering in a number of ways, including:

  • Interpreters lead one hour historical tours for guests during regular hours and by appointment with groups that prearrange on other days.

  • Gift Shop Clerks are the first staff members that greet our guests and answer traveler questions. Volunteers in our Gift Shop handle merchandise sales, tour tickets, and aid the Gift Shop supervisors with assistance to keep the shop running.  

  • Volunteers cleaning staff to clean the house and shop. Regular times are scheduled each month. 


  • Groundskeepers groom the yard and gardens to showcase our beautiful house. Each spring, volunteers refresh the gardens and plant flowers in planters and beds.  We need volunteers who are willing to take the responsibility to weed, trim, water, deadhead flowers, and improve the garden beds.

The lawn service mows the grass, but everything else outside is done by volunteers. FOR MORE INFORMATION: Please contact our volunteer team at info@wright1900.org or call 815.936.9630.  

Volunteer orientation is held as needed, usually on a Saturday morning from 10:00-11:30am.  Let us know by phone or email if you plan to attend so materials will be available for you.Volunteer and help us continue to operate educational programs and maintain this American landmark.
