2020 Events and Activities
To help support efforts to contain the spread of COVID-19, and to ensure the safety of our visitors, staff, and volunteers, Job Carr Cabin Museum will temporarily close to the public as of Friday, March 13. We have suspended our public programming, and are pausing field trip reservations. Please check our website and social media accounts for future updates.
We greatly appreciate the support of our community, partners, and sponsors during what we hope will be a short closure.
Thank you for your understanding.
