Docents

    The History Museum offers visitors guided tours of its historic houses, Copshaholm, the Oliver Mansion and the Worker’s Home, daily. Conducting these tours are volunteer docents. Individuals who have a special interest in historic houses may want to volunteer as a docent. The History Museum provides a docent training course where individuals learn how to lead tours. Information about the architecture and furnishings of Copshaholm, the Oliver family, and the Oliver Chilled Plow Works is given in the course. Classes focus on a variety of themes related to the Oliver Chilled Plow Works, including the Industrial Revolution and the expanding Western frontier. Information covered ranges from the history of the St. Joseph River Valley region to roles and obligations of the different social classes of the period. Publications and continuing-education lectures, designed to augment the initial training course, are offered throughout the year.
