Volunteering

photoDocents are volunteers who interpret life on the 18th-century coastal plantation through an orientation film, timeline, and artifacts on display in the kitchen, spinning room, and children’s room in the main house as well as in the original milk house. Docents also interpret the exhibition, "Native Americans: First Contact on Lower Delmarva," on loan from Salisbury University's Edward H. Nabb Research Center for Delmarva History and Culture.

Docents have created a variety of interpretive activities for children for use inside the House as well as outdoor 18th-century games.

From mid-May through late October, Docents open Rackliffe House for tours every Tuesday and Thursday from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.
New Docents training for 2017 will be held on Wednesday June 7th from 9:30 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.
