About

The Matthews Heritage Museum, 232 N. Trade Street is looking for individuals to serve as docents or tour guides. Do you like to learn? Do you like history? Join the group of women and men who are conducting guided tours of the museum. The rewards are great! A new training class will be offered beginning July 12.

You will learn the local history of Matthews, from the early settlers to the present. Share the stories of yesteryear with our guests. Each volunteer is asked to take one shift of 3 hours once a month. Shifts are AM: 10 to 1, PM: 1 - 4

In addition to learning history, you will enjoy getting to know this interesting group. Occasionally the volunteers will take trips to other historic sites of interest. An initial training class of 4 days will orient new volunteers. The training sessions will be held Thursday mornings from 10 to 12 on July 12, 19, 26 and August 2.
