Are you interested in local, state, or national history? Do you like teaching and sharing information? Do you enjoy meeting new people every day?

The Museum of Culpeper History is seeking volunteers to help with its daily operations and ongoing programs. Our volunteers allow us to put visitors in touch with the story of Culpeper’s past every day, seven days a week. Without their hard work and support, we would not be able to do the work we do!


History Alfresco is the Museum of Culpeper History’s annual fall fundraising event!  Past events have included rare access to privately owned historic properties, catered food and drink, guest lecturers, trivia, music, and more. 

This year’s History Alfresco will be held the evening of Thursday, October 19 at historic Liberty Hall Plantation with hosts Dan and Sarah Coleman.  

Enjoy an Oktoberfest themed dinner catered by the Bavarian Chef restaurant in Madison, show off your mastery of Culpeper history with our trivia contest, bid on an assortment of exciting products and experiences in our silent auction, and learn about the historic people and events that have touched historic Liberty Hall.
