ORGANIZATION: Lower Cape Fear Historical Society at Latimer House


Want the inside scoop on the historic homes in downtown Wilmington? Enjoy sharing interesting facts with others? Then you’d make the perfect docent!

The Candlelight Tour is a self-guided tour through a selection of historic homes and other sites in downtown Wilmington. Docents are stationed at tour sites in two-hour shifts to act as guides for visitors. They are supplied with information on the site’s history from LCFHS and share it with visitors.

In addition, docents receive a free, complimentary ticket to the event (a $50 value!) so they can take the tour themselves after their shift. They are also invited to the exclusive Candlelight Tour Social after the event.

Interested? Email for more details. We look forward to hearing from you!
