Step back in time at Woodville Plantation when this museum presents a special event. On Sunday, October 28, 2012, visitors are invited to join the historic interpreters of Woodville Plantation as they play the 18th century game of stoolball, the forerunner of modern baseball. This game was enjoyed by both men and women of the gentry and working classes and was even played by General Washington and his troops during the American Revolution.
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.
