Docent training


I have always wanted to be a tour guide. Once I had dreamed of doing it at a winery. Now I’m getting the opportunity to do it at a local historical building–Kearney Mansion.

This house was built as the farm manager’s home and Mr. Kearney stayed here while working on his estate farm of 5,000 acres, mostly grape vineyards that turned the grapes into raisins. M. Theo Kearney was known as the raisin king.

I will be giving three school tours on Tuesdays in May. Not quite a winery, but still involving vines!

  1. How fun is that! Enjoy your tour guide experience. 🙂

  2. Cool! I hope you write about your experiences so I can join you (in a virtual way, that is). It sounds like it will be a great time!
