Malibu’s Adamson House Docent Training Starts In October:

The Malibu Adamson House Foundation is recruiting volunteers/docents to be trained in conducting Saturday tours of the historic Adamson House and Malibu Lagoon Museum.

The training will be held on Tuesday afternoons from mid-October to early December, 2011 (skipping the Tuesday of Thanksgiving week).

Prospective docents will receive an intensive 7-week training course, held once a week for three hours per session, with additional study time required.

Trainees hear from expert

speakers on pertinent topics and learn how to conduct effective public tours, as well as learn the history of the house and early Malibu.

Successful docents are expected to commit a minimum of 8 hours a month to give tours to the public (two four-hour sessions every other Saturday).

In addition to the minimum commitment, there are many other volunteer and enrichment opportunities.

The Adamson House is a 1930 Spanish Colonial Revival residence adjacent to Surfrider Beach, built by Rhoda Rindge Adamson (daughter of Frederick Hastings Rindge and May Knight Rindge, last owners of the Malibu Spanish land grant) and her husband, Merritt Adamson.

The Rindge/Adamson families have a significant place in Southern California history.

The home retains most of the family’s furnishings from the 1930s to the 1960s and features extensive tile work from the family’s famed Malibu Potteries.

The residence and collection offer a glimpse into Malibu’s past.

If interested in becoming a Saturday docent at the Adamson House, please contact Joan Hurley, 818.889.8520 for more information.
