Getting Involved

How can you help the Merwinsville Hotel Restoration?

How can you help the Merwinsville Hotel Restoration?

The Merwinsville Hotel Restoration is always in need of volunteer help and we welcome the help of those who want to get involved.
In 2019, we were the beneficiaries of a gift of an installation of a new kitchen garden thanks to a cooperative effort with the UConn Extension Master Gardener Program. Master Gardener Janice Sniffin of New Milford began the installation of a 20 X 20-foot garden on the southern lawn to represent what would have been planted there in the 1840s, when the hotel was first built and in operation. Inside the picket fence marking the garden are perennial native plants and pathways.
How can you help the Merwinsville Hotel Restoration?She has planted them in a grid, with two sections for vegetables, one for herbs and one for medicinal plants. Eventually there will be plant markers and a brochure explaining what ailments the plants were used to cure. See story in the Republican-American on the kitchen garden(registration required).

Join us as a volunteer

Do you have a special skill that you’d like to share? Would you like to assist at one of our three annual shows? Please let us know how you could best aid the efforts of the Merwinsville Hotel Restoration.
Our most dedicated volunteers are on our Board of Directors and we salute those who give countless hours to make sure the Hotel is operational and open for events and functions.

membership

Our goal is to make more people aware of the hotel as a cultural, social and educational center for the community. The best way of doing that is by encouraging them to join as a member of the Hotel. If you would like to assist in membership drives, contact Jennifer Haase.
