A fun way to learn about history.
- Saturday, July 8.
- The Bradford House, located at 175 S. Main Street, will be open for walk-throughs of the first floor.
- The Whiskey Rebellion Education and Visitor Center, located at 184 S. Main Street, will be open for walk-throughs.
- The Meeting House, located at 182 S. Main Street, will have various demonstrators.
- Courthouse Tours and Talks occur throughout the day Saturday. Take the opportunity to visit "the People's Palace". Despite being over 100 years old, Washington County's courthouse remains one of western Pennsylvania's architectural gems with a past to match its grandiose design. Tours, provided by the Pennsylvania Trolley Museum, start outside and take you through some of the beautiful interiors as you dive into the architecture and history of the structure and the county. Additionally, there are courtroom tours.
- We encourage everyone to visit all of these sites on another day for a full tour.
