Home of John & Presley Neville

Begun in 1775 and completed in 1785 by General John Neville an American military officer, land speculator, and tax collector, Woodville (the John & Presley Neville House) is among Southwestern Pennsylvania’s oldest surviving homes and the site of a pivotal skirmish in the infamous Whiskey Rebellion of the 1790s.

This National Historic Landmark, with its original house, reconstructed early 1800s barn, future interpretive cabin and reproduction still is the region’s principal link to the late 18th century, interpreting the time period of 1780-1825. It documents the lives of the three families that resided there, the Nevilles (1775-1815), the Cowans (1815-1835), and the Wrenshalls (1835-1975).

Conveniently located just 8.4 miles southwest of Pittsburgh just off I-79, Woodville’s house, barn, and grounds are open seasonally on Sundays as well as for special events and programs. We invite you to become part of The Woodville Experience today.

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
