Boston National Historical Park

Boston National Historical Park



EASTERN NATIONAL provides quality educational products and services to the visitors to America's national parks and other public trusts.

Eastern National currently operates educational retail outlets in 30 states, from Maine to the Caribbean. We see our mission as a double opportunity to offer quality educational materials and services to park visitors and the general public at fair prices, and to aid the National Park Service with the income derived from these activities. All of the products, programs and publications offered to visitors have a strong educational value and assist the educational programs of the Service.



Volunteers at Boston National Historical Park play an important role. Some perform ship maintenance aboard the World War II destroyer, USS Cassin Young. Others assist the park by providing visitor services to help orient the thousands of people who visit our sites each year. Still others offer their expertise in particular specialties, often with decades of experience behind them. All told, our volunteers give more than 16 thousand hours each year to our park, thus truly embodying the National Park Service spirit of stewardship. We encourage you to join our volunteer group by calling Bill Foley at 617-242-5629.

Though no specific volunteer positions are listed, we are always looking for help. See what the volunteers are doing on USS Cassin Young.
