Museum currently seeking docents

IRONTON — Help wanted: Must be a member of the Lawrence County Historical Society or willing to become one and must be able to donate one four-hour shift per month.

The Lawrence County Historical Society is looking for docents to help with the historical museum at 506 S. Sixth St.

Laura Brown, chairman of the museum docents, said those interested are invited to a docents meeting at 11 a.m. May 16.

“If they love to learn, or they love history, we’d love to have them for docents,” Brown said.

The docents will be trained to conduct tours of the museum and may be involved in other historical society activities, such as the annual ghost walk at Woodland Cemetery and the museum’s Christmas tea.

Docents must be historical society members and must donate one afternoon each month. The museum is open 1-4 p.m. Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays from April-December.

A light lunch will be served after the meeting. Those interested may call the museum at 532-1222.
