About

Do you love meeting new people? Are you interested in local history? Do you want to give back to the community? Then the Historical Ainsley House is the perfect volunteer opportunity for you. The Ainsley House is looking for Museum Docents to provide guided tours to Ainsley House visitors. Docents will be provided with training in the history of the Ainsley House and the Ainsley Family.

This year the Ainsley House celebrates its 90 th Anniversary. Built in 1925 as the home for Campbell’s fruit canning pioneer J.C. Ainsley and his wife, Alcinda, the Ainsley House is a 15 room beautifully restored English Tudor style home that transports the visitor to the bygone era of the 1920’s. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the public is invited to join docent led tours and experience a local treasure and authentic representation of life 90 years ago.
