Historic Research Internship for the Montgomery County PA Department of Parks and Heritage Services (northwest of Philadelphia)
Unpaid internship working with senior historic site staff to compile documentation for the largest county park, Green Lane Park, which was created in the 1950s when a reservoir was built. Intern will coordinate historical information and look for maps, photographs, and documentation at local historical resources for the people and businesses that were in the area before the reservoir was built to develop interpretation/display material. May involve oral histories. Will involve travel within the county.
Number of hours and days of the week flexible, but would like a commitment for at least 150 hours. Prior experience with historical research a plus, but not necessary.
