Essex Historical Society Needs Volunteer Pratt House Tour Guides

Essex Historical Society is Looking for Volunteers to Become Pratt House Tour Guides this Summer

Essex Historical Society is looking for volunteers with an interest in local history to become Pratt House tour guides.

Interested in learning more about the history of Essex, the earliest settler’s and the town’s varied  architecture?  If so, please consider being a Pratt House tour guide this summer.  The Pratt House will be open for tours beginning June 1st, and continuing through the end of September. A fondness for history and an interest in meeting people are the only skills need to become a good Docent.

All Docents will work in pairs.  Those who sign up to become Docents guides will receive free training about the home, its furnishing, and the general history of the area. New Docents, of all ages, are always welcome.

For more information, please call Mary Ann Pleva at 860-767-8560 or Bette Taylor at 860-581-3365
