Beaufort History Museum is offering docent classes to train volunteers who lead museum tours and serve as community liaisons.
Directed by docent educator Lorrie Burleyknoles, the classes will teach participants how Beaufort shaped America from the early European settlements, its involvement in the Revolutionary War and dramatic role during the Civil War to the Reconstruction Era, the complex transition to the 20th Century, and its current-day prominence as a major tourist destination and site of military training and defense.
The training curriculum will cover all stages of Beaufort’s 500-year history as educators impart knowledge of the Museum’s collection, including artifacts and photos, and it’s mission. Once Docents have completed training, they will be asked to serve up to three shifts per month and commit to a one-year period of service.
Classes will be held at the Beaufort Branch Library at 311 Scott St. and at the historic Arsenal at 713 Craven Street. Space in the class is limited, and those interested in attending the five-week session are encouraged to register early. For more information on the Docent program, or other volunteer opportunities with the Museum, contact:
