in Community by

The Beaufort History Museum (BHM) is recruiting the fall 2015 class of volunteer docents to lead tours and serve as community liaisons. BHM Docent Educator, Lorrie Burleyknoles, announced the new class sessions starting on October 14th.

“The training curriculum will cover all aspects of history relating to Beaufort. Our educators will provide docents with knowledge of the museum’s collections, history and mission,” she said. “Once docents have completed the training process, which consists of five classes, they will be asked to serve approximately four shifts per month and will commit to a one-year period of service to the museum.”

All sessions will be held at The Beaufort History Museum, which is located in The Arsenal at 713 Craven Street in Beaufort’s historic district. For more information on the docent program, or other volunteer opportunities, contact Lorrie Burleyknoles at docent@beaufortschistorymuseum.com.

The Beaufort History Museum has evolved to focus specifically on the deep and rich history of the Beaufort District. It strives to manage and display artifacts and documents held by the City of Beaufort, telling the compelling stories of this area from the early 16th century until modern times.
