PROM PICTURES
We are happy to have all of the beautifully dressed prom-goers come to Jerusalem Mill Village with their parents to take pictures. BUT - we only have 28 parking spots open in the evenings. Parking along the road is illegal, and impedes the drivers who like to drive 50 mph on the 35 mph Jerusalem Road and the 25 mph Jericho Road. So, be warned that YOU will get a PARKING TICKET if you park anywhere other than the 28 designated parking spots.

Jerusalem Mill Village recently lost something…
Someone of Value
David Alan Fisher, “our” Ben Franklin.
On Saturday, during Dave’s Memorial Service
his daughter expressed his final wishes; that
his costumes be left to the F.O.J.M. Village,
and in lieu of flowers, donations be made
to the village that he loved.
His “wish” that historical re-enactment continue.
Thank You, Dave, for all that You and Ben
did for us, gave to us.

Volunteers Needed

The success of Jerusalem Mill’s Living History program relies on generous donations of time and money. Our most valuable resource is the volunteers that give of their time to help us maintain and operate the village and share its rich history with our many visitors. Our volunteers get to meet people from all over the world (every state and 39 countries, so far), and they provide the visitors with an opportunity to learn about the past and enjoy a variety of activities in a historical setting and beautiful surroundings. In order to continue providing our living history program and activities, we need new volunteers. Following is a list of critical needs for volunteers willing to help out once a month or once a week!

General Store docent – Sundays from 1 PM to 4 PM: Guide people through the c. 1830s building while they enjoy the Civil War room and the mid-1900s store itself. Encourage visitors to peruse the collection of artifacts on display and share the story of the store’s role in the Civil War (i.e. the Confederate raid to “acquire” supplies) and its importance to the local community. No prior knowledge of the history is required. For more information on this opportunity, contact Carol Powell on 410-322-0226.

Visitor Center & Museum docent – Saturdays from 1 PM to 4 PM or Sundays from 10 AM to 1 PM: Guide visitors through the 1772 grist mill; give a general orientation of the village and surrounding trails and a tour of the mill. No prior knowledge of the village history is required. For more information, contact Rich Albright on 410-877-3560.

Lawn Maintenance – Wednesdays, any time between 8:30 and 12:30 PM. Drive one of our riding mowers, operate one of our walk-behind self-propelled mowers, or trim with one of our gas-powered string trimmers to help us maintain the grounds and enhance the natural beauty of the village. Even as little as 1 hour of help is appreciated. Personal protective equipment will be available, or you can bring your own. For more information, contact Rick Decker on 410-591-7075.

All volunteers are covered by Worker’s Compensation insurance, provided by the State of Maryland, while in a volunteer status. Volunteers will be given an electronic copy of the Volunteer Handbook, outlining park and village policies and presenting the history of the village.
