SALT LAKE CITY — The Church History Museum is seeking individuals interested in serving as volunteer tour guides at the historic Beehive House in downtown Salt Lake City. The Beehive House is a beautifully restored historic home, a significant historic site of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and a popular tourist destination for visitors to Temple Square and LDS Church headquarters. It was originally built for President Brigham Young and completed in 1855.

The home’s tours focus on the history of the Beehive House and its residents and architecture. The tours will be scripted, and guides will be trained to present them in their own words using professionally accepted historic house interpretation techniques, according to a news release.

Interested individuals must be able to work a minimum of 12 hours per week on a rotating Monday through Saturday schedule. Those accepted will be called to serve for two years as part-time church service missionaries. Work schedules for this live-at-home assignment will be flexible and allow participants time for family and personal events and occasional travel.
