Heyward House Museum & Welcome Center

  • A group opportunity. Invite your friends.
  • 11 people are interested

Our interior is currently closed but we will be looking for more volunteers once we reopen the house. Docents will need to wear a mask and social distance.
The Heyward House is the first stop for many visitors to Old Town Bluffton! Visitors are excited to learn about the history and what there is to see and do in the Historic District and surrounding area. Heyward House docents provide 45 minute guided tours of the house and grounds upon request. Docents also offer maps, directions, and suggestions for sites to see and where to eat in the local area. Some of our docents also volunteer their time to provide guided walking tours of the historic district. If you enjoy history and meeting new people this is the perfect volunteer opportunity for you! If you would like to learn more, please call us at (843) 757-6293!
