Pioneer Park Historical Complex Seeks Volunteers & Workers for Upcoming Season

Pioneer Park Historical Complex Facebook

For 89 years, the Pioneer Park Historical Complex has given locals and visitors alike a peak at Northwoods logging history.

“It’s such a wonderful complex of museums. Our community takes a lot of pride in it,” said Historical Complex Director Kerry Bloedorn.

The museum was able to run a normal schedule last year despite the pandemic. It put into place the health guidelines we’re all used to by now like social distancing and hand sanitizing stations.

“It went off without any problems. I was really satisfied with how our visitors interacted with the complex and with each other. Everybody was really respectful of each other,” said Bloedorn.

Bloedorn is looking forward to another successful season. To do that, the Historical Complex is in need of volunteers and workers.

The needs range from small projects like painting and dusting to interacting with visitors.

“They become ambassadors or our community because we get thousands of visitors from all over the country and all over the world. To have local people, at the museum, not only talking about the history and the museum and all the information provided there, but just being available to ask questions about the community,” said Bloedorn.

People who are interested can contact Bloedorn. You can email him at rhinelanderpphc@gmail.com or give call or text the museum at 715-369-5004. Bloedorn will also respond to Facebook messages.

The Pioneer Park Historical Complex is set to open May 29th.
