In addition to the mansion, the society owns the Boogersburg School, a one-room schoolhouse that holds educational programs year round.

The society offers guided tours of the mansion and school, field trip programs, educational programs in the Boogersburg School, and a historical archives and library. The website offers visitor information, histories of the mansion, school, and society, information regarding all programs offered by the society, and an events calendar.
