Outstanding Volunteers

Forty Years of Volunteer Service - Surratt Society


While we welcome every new volunteer, we also recognize those who have worked with us for many years. One of these groups is the all-volunteer Surratt Society, which was formed in September 1975 to assist the Department of Parks and Recreation as we opened our first historic house museum. The Surratt Society has grown from 20 local members to over 1600 worldwide, with 40 people active as volunteers at the Surratt House Civil War era museum each month.
