Docent spotlight: Martha Baker
Meet Martha Baker. She has been a volunteer docent at the Highlands Ranch Mansion for three months. When asked what she enjoys most about volunteering at the Mansion, she replied, "I particularly enjoy our youngest visitors. They're so enthusiastic and excited. I love the look of awe on their faces when they first come into the building."
Martha has worked with children, volunteering as a storytime reader for the Douglas County library in Castle Rock for eight years. She was also an art history teacher for 20 years and loves to draw, paint, sculpt and work with ceramics.
Martha's favorite room at the Mansion is the Solarium. She likes how bright and airy it is. Martha says, "When you walk into that room, it feels like you're stepping back in time."
Martha is excited to continue her journey as a Mansion docent.
