LOCKPORT – The Niagara County Historical Society seeks volunteers to lead school and group tours through its five-building complex at 215 Niagara St.

Museum staff and veteran volunteers will train tour leaders, called docents. An application process and training program will be scheduled later this winter. Docents lead groups of 10 to 15 students or adults on tours lasting 60 to 90 minutes. Schedules vary and are flexible.

The museum buildings date from the 19th century and contain period rooms and exhibits relating the history of Native Americans, early settlers, the Erie Canal, transportation, business and industry, the Civil War and the Victorian era. Information on volunteering is available by calling Education Coordinator Ann Marie Linnabery at 434-7433.
