Castine Historical Society

CHS, occupying two historic buildings on the town common in Castine, Maine, is a 501(c)(3) membership organization which was an all volunteer effort prior to 2009. As its mission states, CHS “seeks to engage residents and visitors of all ages in the exploration and stewardship of Castine’s diverse historical resources.” Currently, the paid staff working with a volunteer Board of Directors consists of a full time curator and a part time administrator. Seasonal exhibits are staffed by volunteers. In 2014, CHS will complete construction of a climate-controlled, fireproof storage facility and research center in its restored circa 1850 Grindle House.

Curatorial Intern
Internship Opportunity
Castine, ME



Castine Historical Society (CHS) is offering one internship opportunity for a graduate student enrolled in a museum studies, public history, archival science or related Master's degree or Ph.D. program.  The internship is full time (35 hours per week) for 10 weeks in the spring or summer of 2014 with a stipend of $2,800.  CHS The Society will work with the student to structure the internship to meet requirements for academic credit as needed.

The intern will work as a member of a professional team on two projects central to the CHS mission.  The majority of the time will concentrate on an inventory and preservation storage effort in preparation for moving the CHS collections to a new archival facility.  With training and supervision provided by the curator, the intern will work with PastPerfect museum software and archival storage materials to complete this detail-intensive project.  The intern also will be given the opportunity to design and produce audio recordings for self-guided walking tours of Castine's historic district.  This public history project may include working with volunteers to offer guided walking tours.
