Old Fort Western Spring Hiring Opportunity!
Old Fort Western, built in 1754 and a National Historic Landmark, is Maine’s and New England’s oldest surviving wooden fort – a reminder of the great contest of cultures that dominated New England life 250 years ago.

Successful candidates must enjoy working with the public, possess outstanding (speaking and listening) communications skills and have a sincere interest in history. Previous classroom teaching, training, or interpretive experience is a plus. A minimum of a high school diploma is required plus one year or equivalent of college.

Interpreters are exposed to a variety of temperature and weather conditions. Interpreters should be able to do moderate lifting and physical activities associated with 18th century manual work. Some examples are: cooking over an open fire, hauling water, sawing and splitting wood, loading and firing muskets and cannons, etc.
