Spring Hill is seeking qualified candidates to serve on our Board of Trustees. Our organization is rebuilding and reprioritizing its efforts in order to better serve our mission and membership through developing a strategic plan.
Board service with Spring Hill is a unique and rewarding opportunity to serve a not-for-profit institution for the preservation and stewardship of one of Massillon’s oldest historic properties.
Spring Hill is a privately-funded historic site located in Massillon, Ohio. Inhabited from the 1810s to the 1970s, the Rotch and Wales families were strong supporters of the abolitionist movement and even opened their home to runaway slaves on the Underground Railroad. Spring Hill was one of the last expansive farms in Massillon proper before the land was auctioned in 1963, and operated a dairy business starting in 1878. The organization was founded as Massillon Museum Foundation, Inc. in 1967 to save property acreage from redevelopment, and rebranded as Spring Hill Historic Home, Inc. in 2006. Spring Hill's mission is "to preserve unimpaired for future generations the house, outbuildings and grounds known as Spring Hill; to interpret Spring Hill and the families who lived there in light of their historical importance; and to maintain Spring Hill as a historic site open to the public."
Those interested will be asked to review the Spring Hill Board member position description and submit a board candidate form. Applicants should prepare to dedicate at least 3-5 hours per month to board service, which typically includes but is not limited to: Monthly all-board meetings, special meetings (strategic planning), committee meetings (if applicable), helping at events, and reviewing emailed correspondence.
