WOODVILLE PLANTATION HOSTS SPECIAL HOLIDAY TOURS BY CANDLELIGHT
BRIDGEVILLE, PA (November 9, 2009) – Step back in time at Woodville Plantation as this living history museum celebrates the holiday season in an 18th century fashion. On Sunday, November 22, 2009, the public can experience the holidays in a “different light” with candlelit tours of Woodville Plantation. Admission is $5 per adult and $10 per family. The site will be open from noon until 8 pm.
Visitors will learn how 18th century holiday customs differ from modern celebrations. Highlighted will be traditions such as Twelfth Night, Boxing Day, and the firing of the Christmas guns. Guests will be treated to expanded historical demonstrations, musical recitals and the most accurate re-creation of the 18th century holiday season in Western Pennsylvania. Also included in the tour will be a sneak peak of the newly restored visitor reception area.
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, PA, Woodville is conveniently located 1/4 north of Interstate I-79 Exit 55 (Kirwin Heights Exit) on Route 50, near the intersection of Thoms Run Road in Collier Township.
