Volunteer / Donate 2018-03-08T22:16:50+00:00


If you are interested in volunteering please contact us. We always have projects for those interested in donating their time and talents. Companies, charitable organizations, church groups, and civic clubs are also welcome to bring a group out to the park to volunteer.


We are always looking for objects for display in our buildings and Visitors Center but we ask that you contact us before bringing any items because unfortunately we have very little storage space…nearly every object and artifact we own is on display.

Become A Sponsor, Friend or Lifetime Member of the Old Waynesborough Commission.

The Old Waynesborough Commission was chartered in the early 1970’s with the dream of preserving the heritage of Wayne County and restoring the history of the Waynesborough settlement, site of the first county seat. This was a thriving community of over 500 residents involved with river trade and state coach travel until the railroad was built between Wilmington ad Weldon in 1838.

In recent years In addition to operating a historical village, the Commission’s focus has been expanded by operating a Visitors Center and creating several miles of hiking and nature trails.

Please join us in our quest to maintain the culture of Wayne County.
