Do you love history? Do you like talking about history and interacting with other people? If you do, you might consider becoming a docent at Barrington Hall, the antebellum house museum that was the home to Barrington and Catherine King, as well as generations of their descendants.
A docent is a volunteer who acts as a guide in historic homes, museums and art galleries. Barrington Hall, as well as Roswell’s Smith Plantation and Bulloch Hall, all use docents to guide tours throughout the properties.
Docent training is scheduled for July 17, 19, 24 and 26 at 7 p.m. at Barrington Hall. Docent training sessions will teach the history of Barrington Hall and of the family that occupied it for 161 years.
If you would like to be a volunteer docent at Barrington Hall, please call 770-640-3855. Barrington Hall is located at 535 Barrington Drive in Roswell.
