Living History Resources

A wonderful part of history is giving people a chance to see and experience what life was like in the past. It gives people a better appreciation for history. Whether it is cooking by the fire, or in a handmade oven, experiencing soldier life, making a wooden chair, standing inside a Native American village, or working a farm with 19th-century equipment. There are literally hundreds of groups and historic sites out there that are looking for reenactors and volunteers to teach people about history. Below you will find links to groups and sites that are looking for volunteers or reenactors.

This page will be constantly updated. If you are part of a group or site that is in need of reenactors or living history volunteers, Please contact us at magical.history.tour.pgh@gmail.com and give us your group info and website.
