Docents/Tour Guides lead interpretive historic house and exhibit tours at Acorn Hall, an 1853 Italianate mansion and headquarters for Morris County Historical Society (MCHS). Operated by MCHS as a house museum, Acorn Hall retains much of its original fabrics, furnishings and decor, and recently received a historically-accurate exterior paint-scheme restoration. Docents/Tour Guides give engaging and informative tours to a variety of audiences to introduce them to Acorn Hall and its original residents, and to local and state history as presented in MCHS exhibits. MCHS offers tours to the public on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., and on Sundays, from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m., and by appointment. Background information and training is provided. This is a great opportunity to join a dedicated group of volunteers who share your interests in local history and historic preservation...please join us!
