Share the stories of Elgin's historic homes

Interested in Volunteering in 2019?

Every year, the House Tour is a success due largely to the 400+ volunteers that commit their time during the weekend of the tour and the months leading up to it. We are always searching for people to help share the history of Elgin's home. Please take a moment to view the opportunities available below.

 

Tour Docent

 These people are the true storytellers: they are stationed at the houses to share the story of each home with visitors.  Working a 3.5-hour shift on one day, this job allows plenty of time to visit all the homes on the tour and a complimentary ticket to the tour.  Additionally you will have access to a volunteer tour preview night where you will get to visit some of the homes before the general public and a ticket to our exclusive after party..
