DeGolyer House Docents

Docents are needed throughout the year to guide visitors through this historic mansion.

The 21,000-square-foot DeGolyer House contains 13 rooms, seven baths, five fireplaces, seven chimneys and a 1,750-square-foot library. Docent-led tours provide visitors an in-depth look at this centerpiece to the Dallas Arboretum. Training is provided for interested individuals. Room host positions are also available and are utilized during busier times. These positions do not require training.

Many docents commit to a regular weekly shift. Shifts times are Monday through Saturday, 9:30 a.m.-1 p.m. and 1-4:30 p.m., and Sunday from 11:30 a.m.-4 p.m.
