Volunteers-In-Parks (VIPs) are an important part of Weir Farm National Historic Site. Each year we benefit from the efforts of over 100 VIPs who assist us with a variety of projects and tasks; including garden and trail maintenance, visitor services and interpretation, historic buildings maintenance and preservation, and archival letter transcription.

Painter Julian Alden Weir installed stars on the ceiling of all three of his studios. He had three studios: one in New York City, one in Windham, CT and one behind his home in Branchville, CT. Visitors will be able to see the original stars in his Branchville studio at Weir Farm National Historic Site once the Weir Studio has been restored in late 2013.
