Linden Place Mansion is looking for individuals interested in becoming tour guides in Bristol’s “great house” at 500 Hope Street, Bristol. Prospective docents need not have experience and will be provided with historical information and guidelines designed to help in the presentation of the story of Linden Place Museum to visitors. Tour guides will have the opportunity to learn about Bristol history, 19th century living, and the history of Linden Place’s occupants, the DeWolf and Colt families. Becoming a tour guide is a gradual, at-your-own-pace process, a great way to learn about local history and an enjoyable way to meet new people in a relaxed, informal environment. Scheduling is flexible. For more information please call Robin at the Linden Place office at 401/253-0390.
