Lincoln Log Cabin State Historic Site

Lincoln Log Cabin State Historic Site preserves the site of the 1840s farm of Thomas and Sarah Bush Lincoln, father and stepmother of our 16th president. Located at 402 South Lincoln Highway Lerna, IL 62440.

Volunteers are needed to work the front desk and act as guides for the visitor center. Duties include starting the informational video for guests, orienting them to the site and exhibits, requesting that they sign in for guest counts and demographics, and acting as an ambassador to the site.

Volunteers are also needed to work in the gift shop to transact retail sales and restock shelves.

Training and name tags are provided. Dress is casual, but professional (khakis and polo).

From Labor Day to Memorial Day the Visitor Center and Gift Shop are open Wednesday through Sunday 9 a.m.-4 p.m. From Memorial Day to Labor Day the VC and GS are open seven days a week from 9 a.m.-5 p.m.
