Training for volunteer docents at the Utah State Capitol will begin next month, and those interested in hosting tours of the historic building are asked to submit applications to the state.
Tour guides have a chance to meet people from around the world as they share information on the history, architecture and art in the capitol. They also tell about the work that goes on there.
“The Utah State Capitol is a living legacy for all Utahns,” said Allyson Gamble, executive director of the Capitol Preservation Board, as quoted in a press release. “We are grateful for the docents and the time and energy they spend sharing the ‘People’s House’ with visitors from near and far.”
Tours are given every hour between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, and volunteer guides are asked to work at least one four-hour shift every other week.
Applications are due by Wednesday, Sept. 25, and training begins Oct. 1.
