Although rain is expected, this training session will still be held. Historical content can be discussed indoors and a walk-through will be rescheduled if needs be.
April 25 (Sunday, 1 - 4 p.m.) History Walk Training: Freedom's Friends. Love Oberlin and its history and want to help share it with others? Consider becoming an Oberlin Heritage Center volunteer docent -- a great way to learn more about Oberlin's role in the history of abolition and the Underground Railroad. Volunteer docents of the Freedom's Friends History Walk lead visitors on a 75-minute walking tour through historic neighborhoods surrounding downtown Oberlin while sharing stories and images related to anti-slavery activity in Oberlin.
Talk to Museum Education and Tour Coordinator Liz Schultz, [email protected], if you have questions. Register for the training workshop by April 22.
We ask that docents commit to leading at least four tours per year. This fun and diverse group of all ages and backgrounds also meets periodically for informational gatherings, field trips, and more.
Location: Training begins at the Monroe House and will move on from there.
This workshop is free and open to the public.
