Do you enjoy learning about history and architecture? Sharing our community's history? Meeting new people?

Courthouse tour guides give guided tours of the historic County Courthouse every Friday and Saturday at 1:30, 2:30, and 3:30, and we are looking for more tour guides to join our team! Our greatest need is currently Friday tour guides.

Constructed in 1910, the historic courthouse marks the middle of Georgetown's historic town square. Landmark trials such as Dan Moody's famous 1923 prosecution of a Ku Klux Klan member have occured there, and it's architecture reflects the Beaux-Arts style of the early 20th century.

If you are interested in applying, please contact us! After a brief interview and background check, we will provide all the training necessary to get you started. We look forward to meeting you!
