    Homewood Museum is recruiting docents to learn its new interpretive tour. The tour combines news scholarship about the Federal-era historic home's enslaved community with previous scholarship on the home's design, construction, and original owners: Maryland's prominent Carroll family. Drawing on Homewood's exemplary Palladian architecture and world-renowned collections of decorative arts, the new narrative explores how life was lived in Baltimore during the early years of the American republic and how the fates of Homewood's then-residents—both free and enslaved—were linked in ways both common and surprising. 

    Attendance at both sessions (Aug. 4 & 18) is expected. Participants are invited to bring a bag lunch and stay to study the collection at the conclusion of each class. Volunteers who successfully complete the training will be expected to commit to working a mimimum of four hours per month, weekdays or weekends.
