Members of the San Ramon Valley community are encouraged to share their love of Danville history and lend their time as volunteers at either the Museum of the San Ramon Valley, Town of Danville Visitor Center or the Eugene O’Neill National Historic Site. The museum and information center are housed in the restored 1891 Southern Pacific Railroad depot at the corner of Railroad and Prospect Avenues, and the O’Neill Historic Site is a unit of the National Park Service located in the western hills of Danville. Through a collaboration between the Museum of the San Ramon Valley, Town of Danville, and National Park Service, an enhanced visitor experience is being planned for 2018. Regular, committed volunteers are needed in order to fulfill this community service.
Enhancements to the visitor experience being planned at the Museum of the San Ramon Valley include expanded operating hours, supplemental visitor information, and the integration of interpretive information about the Eugene O’Neill National Historic Site (NHS), which is open for tours Wednesday through Sunday.
“This expanded partnership among the Museum, National Park Service, and Town will provide residents and visitors enhanced information and services at the historic Train Depot and the National Historic Site,” stated Town Administrative Services Director Nat Rojanasathira. “Community volunteers are now needed to help bring this effort to fruition.”
“The Museum of the San Ramon Valley will continue to provide valuable collections, exhibits and information that celebrate our history and heritage,” stated Museum of the San Ramon Valley Executive Director Dan Dunn. “By partnering with the Town and the National Park Service, we can help build our volunteer base and open our doors to more visitors.”
“Access to the Eugene O’Neill National Historic Site starts with shuttle service at the Museum of the San Ramon Valley”, stated National Park Service Superintendent Tom Leatherman, who oversees the National Historic Site. He added, “It is a natural fit for us to work together with the Museum and Town to bring more information about Eugene O’Neill and the site to Historic Downtown Danville.”
Volunteers are being asked to complete a volunteer interest form by January 31, 2018. For more information about the program and to complete the form, visit www.museumsrv.org.
