The Gilpin Historical Society currently has openings for two tour guides. One is working at Washington Hall on Saturdays and Sundays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. This guide would lead tours of the Thomas House and St. James Church (with the potential that more buildings will be added to the lineup during the summer) and handle collecting admission fees and gift shop sales. The other guide is working at the Coeur d’Alene Mine Shaft House on Saturdays and Sundays from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. (there is some flexibility in these hours). This guide would provide information about the Coeur d’Alene and handle collecting admission fees. Please note that there is no electricity or bathroom facilities at the Coeur d’Alene. Scripts are provided for both guides. Pay is $15/hour. If interested please contact the Gilpin History Museum at or 303-582-5283.
