West Overton is pleased to announce the reopening of the Distillery Museum! As you may know, for the past 16 months we’ve been undergoing Phase I of our Revitalization Project which has so far culminated in the renovated Distillery Museum. It now offers guests a focused interpretation of the industries and families which helped to make West Overton a thriving village of its time.
Stay tuned for Phase II of the Revitalization Project, which will include reopening the Overholt Homestead with a fresh narrative and new interpretation for the surrounding outbuildings, like the Summer Kitchen, Tack Shop and Smoke House.
There are so many exciting things coming from this great opportunity to really get to the heart of what West Overton is about and new events to come. Please visit our website and Facebook page for updates and any upcoming special events we have in store. Thank you for your support and patience!

Touring West Overton Village
At West Overton, you will have the opportunity to step into the Distillery, built in 1859, in which Old Farm Pure Rye Whiskey was produced.
You will have the opportunity to visit the historic Abraham Overholt Homestead, built in 1838, and step into the very rooms in which Abraham and Mariah Overholt spent their time; you will see the accounting desk used by Abraham along with the preservation efforts made by Helen Clay Frick upon her purchase of the site in 1922.
You can see how the village represents the transformation of American culture from an agrarian society with the production of the coverlets manufactured at West Overton and the Distilling operation to the Industrial society with the excavation of coal and ultimately the production of coke, a necessary ingredient for steel. You will also step into the Spring House that served as the birthplace of Henry Clay Frick in 1849
