The Fairfield Museum and History Center is recruiting a new class of docents, trained volunteer educators who present guided tours and education programs to K-12 students and adults. The docent program is both intellectually stimulating and socially rewarding, including courses, readings, and discussions on topics in American History. Whether you've lived here for many years or are new to the area, come to discover the rewards of sharing the rich history of our town to students, families, and adults.
Docents will help the Museum in the following areas:
-Giving tours of the 1750 Ogden House on Sunday afternoon between Memorial Day and Labor Day
-Helping to open the Museum Commons in July and August by giving tours of the Sun Tavern (c. 1780) and Victorian Barn (c. 1880)
-Leading art and history-related activities for families at the Victorian Cottage
-During the school year, leading interactive tours for K-12 students at the Museum
