State Theme: Journey Through History
State Project: The 2014-2015 State Project will be to raise funds to aid in the continuing restoration of The Neville House by procuring enough money so the house can purchase a serving table that is of the time period for the dining room.
Located off the Washington Pike is a historical artifact that too often goes unnoticed through the chaos of traffic. The Neville House of Woodville plantation holds significance that you may not have guessed at first glance. The Neville House was the home of a general, a former commandant of Fort Pitt, a man of wealth and education. John and Winifred Oldham Neville’s home was deemed “a temple of hospitality.” Its window panes still bear the signatures of guests and relatives, scratched into them with the point of a small object as if to create a transparent page of history. Both informed hard work and good luck have contributed to the restoration of the house and our knowledge of its history. Restoration at “Woodville” has taken years and is continuing, but the zeal and care of restorers and the leadership of devoted volunteers is being rewarded.
Your donations and support will ensure that The Neville House does not go unnoticed but becomes a significant part of the community. This will be an amazing adventure as PA CAR embarks on a Journey through History!
