The Guild of Historic Interpreters is a group of 18th and 19th century living history interpreters (rangers and volunteers) with appropriate talents and aspirations to support the mission, goals and themes of Minute Man NHP. The Guild meets once per month (every month since 1999) to discuss, create and plan 18th and 19th century living history programs, education programs, volunteer training and teacher workshops within the park. Collectively, Guild volunteers donate more than 1000 hours to the park annually. Guild events nclude Town Meeting, Battle Road Heroes, Halloween Tales, Abigail Adams meets Capt. William Smith, The Long Arm of the Law, and 18th century musical performances by the Hartwell Players (comprised of Guild members).
In many ways, The Guild has become the public face of Minute Man NHP. Guild programs, such as “Battle Road Heroes,” attract hundreds of visitors each year, many of whom return and become lasting friends of the park. Some visitors who have attended Guild programs, impressed with the high quality, have asked if the park hires “professional actors.” Many among the living history/reenactor community, inspired by the Guild, have joined the ranks of V-I-P’s.
