Many historic sites, including Terrace Hill, rely on volunteers to help keep facilities running.

If you are interested in joining our volunteer team, we’ll be hosting an informational coffee/chat on Thursday, February 17 at 9:30-10:30 AM in the Carriage House. Please RSVP by Feb. 14 to 515-281-7205 or barbara.willey@governor.iowa.gov.
