From the Friends of the Cabildo:

The Friends of the Cabildo (FOC) is seeking volunteers to assist in the 1850 House Museum Store. The 1850 House Museum Store offers volunteer opportunities for individuals with a passion for Louisiana history as well as an interest in sales, and meeting with the public in a retail store setting. The store supports the mission of the Friends of the Cabildo by selling merchandise that promotes interest in the history, art and culture of Louisiana.

Volunteers must be able to interact with the public in an outgoing, positive and gracious customer service manner. Retail experience is a plus.

If you are interested in volunteering please contact 1850 House Museum Shop manager Jamie Messersmith at 504-524-9118 or
