Volunteering for the KBA



The volunteers of the KBA are dedicated to the efficient operation of the Kernstown Battlefield and the preservation and 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.

          Our volunteers open the park to visitors, staff the Visitor Center sales and information desk, and guide visitors as they tour the 1854 Pritchard House, relating the stories of the Hoge, Pritchard, Burton, and Grim families as they made their livings here, or take visitors on battlefield tours, sharing the stories of the men, North and South, who fought and died here during the Civil War.

          Our Grounds and Maintenance volunteers work all year round on a variety of projects, including mowing and trimming; clearing brush; painting and repairing buildings and fences; and maintaining and improving artifacts and displays.

          KBA also needs volunteers to aid in fundraising and community outreach activities.  Interested individuals should contact the KBA at 540-450-7835 or volunteer@kernstownbattle.org.
