Guided Tour Docent

Description: Walking Tour Guides are the front line ambassadors of The Lewes Historical Society introducing
visitors to the history of the area. These individuals provide visitors with a variety of walking tour
of town including tours of the Historic buildings, the Maritime museum, the Architectural design of
the private homes in town , and the culture of our Ryves Holt House Visitor Center Tavern, the
oldest house in Delaware!

Training: Guided tour docents are expected to attend several training programs each year to build skills in tour delivery and content. Guided tour docents will have the opportunity to shadow existing tour docents to become familiar with content and tour delivery as well as to gain a deeper understanding of the nature of guided tours.

Why this position is so important: Without the guided tour docents, the Society would be unable to fulfill its mission of educating the public. These docents have the chance to reach thousands of visitors each year and greatly extend the reach of the Society into the community.  Each thematic tour that these docents give allows the Society to generate a larger audience and get more visitors to learn about all that The Lewes Historical Society has to offer.
