The Greater Buckeye Lake Historical Society​​​

We are putting out the call to anyone that would like to take some days and Volunteer for us. 

We need Docents at the Museum. This job entails opening the Museum, taking calls, taking admissions, and welcoming visitors to the Museum. The Museum is open 6 days a week.  Tuesday – Sunday 1:00-4:00 pm. 

We need crew for the Queen of the Lake III and Stewards. Crew positions call for helping to dock and undock the boat. Steward positions are for anyone that would like to take tickets, seat people, greet the passengers and help-out while they are on board. The Queen will be giving Public Tours on Saturdays and Sundays all summer long beginning May 15th. We will also have private tours and special events that need volunteers.
You can volunteer daily, weekly, or monthly. If you are interested in Volunteering or need more information call the Museum 740-929-1998 and leave a message or talk to one of the Docents. You can also email me with questions or to sign up as well. Won’t you consider volunteering this season?  We are going to need lots of folks that will show our Boat and Museum as the “Jewels of Buckeye Lake.”

In 2018 the Museum followed the idea of a Night Picnic at the Buckeye Lake Historical Museum. Themes followed the methods used in the picnics of the 50’s and 60’s. The menu was a Fish Fry and pretended to be at another time and place, the Buckeye Lake Amusement Park.

As of January 2019 there have been 55,212  visitors to the museum, since our opening day in 1998. Come visit the Rocket Ship, play Skee Ball or look over thousands of items from the early to mid 1900's.​ Tuesday-Sunday 1 to 4, Closed Mondays.

Our Society was founded at Buckeye Lake, Ohio in 1995 and the museum opened in 1998. Please stop in and view our huge collection of Buckeye Lake Park memorabilia. Our group covers Perry, Licking and Fairfield counties including the communities of Hebron, Millersport and Thornville, along with Buckeye Lake.
