Woodville Plantation Hosts Holidays at the House

November 18, 2012 @ 12:00 pm - 8:00 pm

$5 – $6

Step back in time at Woodville Plantation when this museum presents a special event.  On Sunday, November 18, 2012, celebrate the holiday season in a different light with candlelight tours of Woodville Plantation. Learn how 18th century customs such as Twelfth Night, Boxing Day, and the firing of the Christmas guns differ from our modern celebrations. Featured will be a full table presentation of the Twelfth Night Feast in the newly restored Cowan dining room. Tours will be conducted from noon – 8 pm and admission is $5 per person. Children under 6 are free. No reservations are required.
Woodville Plantation , the home of John and Presley Neville, is Western Pennsylvania’s link to the late 18th century. Built in 1775, this living history museum interprets life during the period of 1780-1820, the Era of the New Republic. Guided tours of the house are available every Sunday from 1 to 4 pm.

Just 7 miles and 15 minutes south of Pittsburgh, Woodville is conveniently located 1/4 mile north of Interstate I-79 Exit 55 (Kirwin Heights Exit) on Route 50, near the intersection of Thoms Run Road in Collier Township. For further directions or for more information, please visit Woodville’s website at or call 412-221-0348.
