Were it not for a group of determined group of community volunteers more than forty years ago, Hildene would not have been saved from development.  To this day, volunteers remain an important part of this historic Lincoln site.  The Lincoln family’s estate is rich in opportunities for volunteer service from the mansion, to the trails, to Hildene Farm.

If you have an interest in supporting our mission “to advance the Lincoln legacy through education, commitment to community, and active stewardship of the family’s home and land” with your time, energy and heart, the online questionnaire for the 2023 season will be available in late winter/early spring. As well, a downloadable/printable form will be available in this location at that time. Please call 800-578-1788 with any questions or CLICK HEREWe'll look forward to being in touch.
