Tour guides are needed at the Skolfield-Whittier House, one of the Pejepscot History Center's two historic house museums. The Skolfield-Whittier home is furnished in largely Victorian style entirely in original artifacts from both the Skolfield & Whittier families ranging from the mid-1800s, into the 20th century. As a Skolfield-Whittier house docent, you will have the opportunity to meet people from all over the world, with a variety of different interests. The house serves as an excellent example of Victorian architecture and is furnished with a range of the period's styles. Anyone interested in antiques, architecture, history, art, biology or shipbuilding will love this museum! The Skolfield-Whittier House has tours Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays at 10am, 11:30am, 1pm, and 2:30pm from May 29th through October of 2021. Tours are approximately 1 hour long and volunteers typically take a 2-tour (am or pm) shift, once a week, but we are flexible. We are seeking new volunteers to begin training for our upcoming 2021 season. COVID precautions including limited people per tours, masks, and social distancing are mandatory. All volunteers of the Pejepscot History Center receive benefits such as invitations to all PHC events, free admission to PHC museums, free research at the Pejepscot Research Center, discounts at the museum's gift shop, and a recognition party at the end of the season.
