For History Lovers – The Portland History Docent Program (PHD) is a collaborative effort by Greater Portland Landmarks (Portland Observatory), Maine Historical Society (Longfellow House), Tate House Museum, Victoria Mansion, the Maine Narrow Gauge Railroad Co. & Museum, the Fifth Maine Regiment Museum, Spring Point Ledge Lighthouse and Spirits Alive at the Eastern Cemetery.

Each spring, these organizations join forces to provide a nine-week training program for new prospective volunteer guides at each organization’s respective museum site. Several weeks of lively and informative talks and presentations take place at Maine Historical Society, combined with site visits to each partnering organization.   More Information.
