Bayou Bend at 50: A Longtime Docent Tells Her Story
Mar 3, 2016 - Oh yes, she sometimes came by when we were giving tours. It was very intimidating to have her nearby as you were telling a guest about a particular painting or piece of furniture. Bayou Bend docent Betsy Ache was there on March 5, 1966. I asked her about her memories of the day, how she became a docent, and more. You were a brand-new “class of 1966” Bayou Bend docent. In addition to being a docent, you also served on the docent board as group-tour chair and general chair. What has kept you so dedicated and involved for so many years?
