Home > WHO WE ARE

The Friends of Carl Sandburg at Connemara, Inc was established 30 years ago to support the Carl Sandburg Home National Historic Site (CHSNHS). FOCS is a 501(c)(3) certified non-profit organization. We are an all-volunteer organization with a Board of Directors composed of a diverse group of volunteers who have varied interests including Sandburg the author, local history and architecture, gardening, animals, hiking, literary education, local tourism and commerce. We are always looking for individuals who want to be involved in this wonderful local treasure. Some of the board members are also volunteers at the Park conducting house tours, minding the goats, or maintaining the gardens. Board members are also retirees, gainfully employed or students.
