Thanks to the assistance of its enthusiastic supporters (which undoubtedly includes many in our program) in the National Trust for Historic Preservation’s recent contest, Colvin Run Mill will be receiving a $75,000 grant to restore its 18th century grain elevator. Congratulations to Mike Henry and everyone at the Mill! Also of note, our friends at George Washington’s Mount Vernon did pretty well too, snagging a $100,000 grant to restore the good General’s dining room. Exciting stuff!

Summer Work for Historical Interpreters on the GW Parkway
George Washington Memorial Parkway is seeking qualified students to work as interpreters in the park this summer. Students will be awarded the opportunity to provide services to visitors by giving talks, interpreting natural and historic features, answering questions, and guiding tours.
Positions are located at multiple sites, including Glen Echo Park, Clara Barton National Historical Site, Arlington House, Great Falls Park, park headquarters, and the park’s maintenance facility.
The park preserves the natural scenery along the Potomac River. It connects historic sites from Mount Vernon, where Washington lived, past the nation’s capital, which he founded, to the Great Falls of the Potomac, where he demonstrated his skill as an engineer.
These temporary employment opportunities are open to current students who meet the requirements of the Pathways internship program. The anticipated entrance on duty date is May/June; employment will end on or before September 30th.
Detailed information is provided in the following vacancy announcements:
