Drawing visitors into the world of the history through first-person interpretation allows them to come to a better understanding of our past. There are 136 museums and living history farms and agricultural museums in the US that offer both first and third-person interpretation and White Pine Village will once again join their ranks.
Mason County Historical Society (MCHS) will develop first-person interpretation, through the use of Theater techniques, with the support of a Michigan Council for Arts and Cultural Affairs (MCACA) grant, beginning in the 2018 summer season.Visitors will have the opportunity to engage with First-person interpreters stationed throughout White Pine Village in various historical buildings and across the 13 acres of the Village. Three interpreters will be on duty Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays. Two additional interpreters will be on duty at the Village Tuesdays and Fridays. The hours of operation for both crews will be 11:00a.m. until 3:00p.m. All interpreters will be paid a stipend of $50 per day. Auditions will be held February 23. Tune in Monday February 19th as the Morning Crew speaks to Mason County Historical Society Executive Director Dr. Rick Plummer about this opportunity.
