Touring West Overton Village & Museum
Step into the Distillery Museum, built in 1859, in which Old Farm Pure Rye Whiskey was once produced.
Visit the historic Abraham Overholt Homestead, built in 1838, and step into the very rooms where Abraham and Mariah Overholt lived their lives; you will see the accounting desk used by Abraham along with the preservation efforts made by Helen Clay Frick, daughter of Industrialist Henry 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. Step into the Spring House where Clay Frick was born in 1849. Walk around the grounds, where hundreds of couples have said “I do” in our gardens or in front of the mansion.
Thanks to a grant from the Laurel Highlands Visitors Bureau Hotel Tax, upgrades were completed in September of 2016 and the Overholt Room and Distillery Museum are now available for rent for non-wedding events such as baby showers, reunions, seminars, parties and business meetings and events.
