We always need new volunteers!

Read our Volunteer Handbook to understand everything entailed with being a volunteer at Davies.

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 time periods we interpret. Attend monthly training days and then partner with an experienced docent until ready to train. Once trained, 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.
