Do you love history? Visiting cemeteries? Enjoy public speaking? If so, you should consider becoming a docent at North Burial Ground! We are spearheading a new docent program at NBG to identify passionate taphophiles to conduct historical tours for the public. Tour topics range from notable internments, Rhode Island politics, public health, and more!
Docents will receive in-depth training on history, tour materials, and routes through the cemetery. North Burial Ground will be offering at least one public tour per month and accepts tour requests from schools, social groups, and civic organizations. Docents are also invited and encouraged to participate in various special events hosted at NBG throughout the year.
If interested in joining the docent program, please download and fill out the NBG Docent Application form and either email it to or drop it off at the NBG office.
