Jr. Docent Program

The Diane Headrick Memorial Junior Docent program offers a fun, educational scavenger hunt for families and children to take a self-guided tour through the museum.

With fifteen questions to answer, families will learn about the lifestyles and cultures of the diverse groups of people who called Tuckaleechee Cove their home.  When all questions are answered, children will receive a sticker and an official certificate plus more!  The program is free with the cost of admission and all ages can participate.

The Junior Docent Program is a memorial to the late Diane Headrick. She was a faithful volunteer who loved serving as a docent and working with children through teaching the history of East Tennessee. She was a wealth of knowledge about Cades Cove and the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. In addition to being a dedicated docent, she also was a member of the Heritage Center’s Guild. She has served as president of the Guild, and routinely contributed to the annual fundraising gala. Diane was an integral part of the Heritage Center family, and the Junior Docent Program continues her legacy of teaching and learning.
