From the moment construction began in 1874, the most intelligent and creative of thinkers have found themselves fascinated with the Hegeler Carus Mansion.

And why not?

Architecturally, it's a masterpiece. Culturally, it was the height of Victorian opulence with a nod toward innovation. Philosophically, it was the home of inspired genius. Currently, it's a National Landmark, complete with original furnishings.

Realistically, it won't restore itself.

In order to bring back the true grandeur of the Hegeler Carus Mansion, funds and artistic skills are needed. In order to tell its story, volunteer docents are needed. Volunteer docents are the voices that speak where walls cannot. Through the passionate, enlightening, and entertaining tours of our docents, guests are whisked away to the days of calling cards, blackleading boxes, the cast iron stove, and the handwritten letter.

The Hegeler Carus Foundation is searching for those intelligent and creative minds with a passion for history to lead guided tours of the Mansion. What better way to learn from the past than to become a part of it?

If you are looking for the kind of experience that's rewarding, challenging, changing, and motivating, contact the Hegeler Carus Mansion today.

Fee for new volunteers is $20 for training manual.
