Volunteering for the KBA


          The volunteers of the KBA are dedicated to the preservation of the Kernstown Battlefield and to the interpretation of its history. They tell the stories of not only the Civil War battles which flowed across the land for four bloody years, but also the stories of the families who have lived here for nearly 300 years.


          Some volunteers open the park to visitors. They guide visitors through the 1854 Pritchard House, relating the story of the Pritchard Family as they lived through the Civil War years, or take visitors on battlefield tours, sharing the stories of the men, North and South, who fought and died here.


          Grounds and Maintenance volunteers work all year round mowing, trimming, painting, repairing, maintaining buildings and fences, clearing brush and other projects.


          Aside from those serving in the Visitor Center and in Grounds and Maintenance, volunteers are needed for fundraising and grant writing activities. Interested individuals should contact the KBA at


The photos below show displays inside the Pritchard House. Specially trained

docents tell visitors the history of the house and the families who lived there,

who farmed the land, and who raised their families.
