We always need new volunteers! Becoming a docent at Davies Manor can be a fun and rewarding experience. We provide a guidebook and other materials that contain facts about the Davies family, the historic home, enslaved people who lived at Davies Plantation, and the different time periods we interpret. We will partner you with an experienced docent until you decide you are ready. Once trained, you can commit as much or as little time as you like. Many of our docents take a single shift in the Manor House each month or every other month. Training can be started at any time. If you think you would be interested in sharing history with our visitors, email us or reach out by phone.

Beginning Tuesday, May 19, the Davies Manor log-house museum will be open for appointment-only tours between the hours of noon and 4 p.m. Tours must be no larger than six people and will be subject to necessary spacing guidelines initiated by Davies Manor staff. The Hillwood event rental facility will also be open for small tours starting May 19. To schedule a time to tour either the museum or rental facility, please contact Cyndy Osborne at, or at (901) 386-2546. We appreciate your ongoing support of Davies Manor and look forward to the time we can safely reopen in full!
