Looking for an interactive, engaging and fun part-time job in 2014? The Historic Old Sacramento Foundation (HOSF) is currently accepting applications for paid tour guide positions for its popular Old Sacramento Underground tour program that will resume in late March or early April 2014.

HOSF is looking to fill a minimum of six paid tour guide positions to staff the coveted Old Sacramento Underground tour program. The underground tour program takes visitors into the city’s underground and hollow sidewalk areas created when the streets were raised in the 1860s and 1870s due to devastating floods.

All available positions for the underground tours are part-time and include evening and weekend shifts. Applicants with public speaking or theatrical experience, a background in history or prior tour guide experience are strongly encouraged to apply.

Interested applicants can review job requirements and/or download an online application at and résumés can be sent to [email protected]

The deadline to submit applications is Jan. 27. No phone calls please.

The Old Sacramento Underground tour program is offered by the Historic Old Sacramento Foundation in partnership with the City of Sacramento, California State Parks, Old Sacramento Business Association and participating merchants and businesses.

The Historic Old Sacramento Foundation (HOSF) is a public benefit corporation. Old Sacramento is a living historic district. The mission of HOSF is to convey the importance of historic Sacramento as a place that connects our past to our present and future through engaging and entertaining events, activities and programs.
