BECOME PART OF THE RAISING OF OUR NEW BARN AND BE PART OF CREATING THE NEW WOODVILLE EXPERIENCE!

As many of you following our journey know, we have been on a mission to expand our historic site and create an entire experience. The Woodville Experience.
The Woodville Experience is designed to educate, inspire, and bring early American history to life.
Over the past 235+ years, Woodville, home of John and Presley Neville, stood against the elements, rebel attacks, reconstruction, and unfortunately, neglect. During its early years, the grounds were a much welcomed rest stop and sanctuary for weary travelers and dignitaries. Most famously, it was a focal point for The Whiskey Rebellion of the 1790s.
Today, Woodville is a National Historic Landmark, known for its rich history as the oldest standing residential property in western Pennsylvania. It was first constructed by Brigadier General John Neville in 1775, and its subsequent ties to the Whiskey Rebellion are a great part of what draws visitors. With your support, we envision being able to share countless more slices of history and important perspectives regarding early American life in the Pittsburgh region through the reconstruction project.
For more information, visit our new GoFundMe page and become part of the process! Also stay tuned for updates on our Barn Raising and Recognition Ceremony.
Join the effort in bringing the legacy of our past into the future!

Take the tour on Sundays for $5, well worth it. A fun, historical tour of the oldest home in Western PA that is driven by and overlooked by many. A true gem right in our "backyard"!

My husband and I and our bridal party had our wedding photos taken this past weekend at Woodville. We loved every part of the house and the wrap around porch was beautiful. Susan O’Toole was a wonderful and kind lady to work with. She was very accommodating to my bridal party and I. We cannot wait to see our photos. Thank you for allowing us to take photos there
