About

Docents/Intrepreters and Demonstrators are vital to the operation of the Museum. These individuales interact directly with Fort visitors helping to provide guided tours of buildings, and/or gardens, and/or grounds, answering questions about the era and the Fortified Village (museum).

Docents/Intrepreters help visitors gain a better understanding of the colonial era and life on the frontier in the Upper Valley. Intrepreters/Docents are frequently also demonstrators providing visitors with visual connections to life along the Connecticut River.
