Museum open house invites volunteers



The Clark County Historical Museum will hold an open house and volunteer recruitment event at 11 a.m. Sept. 6.

The open house at the museum, 1511 Main St., will be an opportunity to meet new Executive Director Katie Anderson, as well as museum volunteers and staff members.

Anderson was hired earlier this summer to replace Susan Tissot, who headed the museum for 10½ years before leaving in May for a job in California.

Anderson's most recent position was at the Musical Instrument Museum in Phoenix, where she was the head of collections for five years.

The museum provides volunteer opportunities for people 18 and older who are interested in local history, care about historic preservation and want to increase their knowledge of Clark County's rich past.
