Description

The Bidwell House Museum offers internship opportunities for high school and college students who are interested in history, specifically Berkshire colonial history.

The Bidwell House Museum is a 1760s New England heritage site providing through its land, house, and collection a personal encounter with early settler life in Berkshire County. The museum includes the fully furnished colonial homestead, several outbuildings and 192 acres of grounds with gardens, stone walls, foundations and hiking trails.

Summer interns spend their internship immersed in local history. The first week of the internship students will learn about colonial Berkshire history, the Bidwell family, and the museum. Interns will also begin giving museum tours to visitors. During the second week, interns continue giving tours and choose a research topic for an article. The articles that are written by interns are published in the museum’s newsletters.

Each intern receives a stipend for the two-week internship.

Thanks in part to private sponsors, donations, and local cultural council grants, who make the internship stipends possible.

Where Your Donation Goes

Donations will go to the Young History Scholar Internship Fund which pays for each intern's stipend.
