What is a Docent?

A docent is a volunteer teacher who serves the Museum and the community as a local history educator.

What Do Docents Do?

Share their love of local history!  Some docents choose to volunteer in all categories, while others focus on one area of expertise. Touring Docents lead tours of the Museum galleries and Fernald Mansion, and our Outreach Docents give PowerPoint presentations in the local community and in the area high schools.
