Friendship Day! Museum Open Free to All!

Sunday, May 20, 1-4 pm, with Music throughout the afternoon!

Experience history in real life as you visit with costumed interpreters, musicians, and Colonial Craftsmen in our small pioneer village.


Visit with craftsmen and sutlers (purveyors colonial goods) around the grounds, then stop in the school house to join the class and visit the village blacksmith. Don't forget to look into the Armstrong's cabin and stop by the Bee Hive Bake Oven to see what goodies Master Baker has made today.


Experience the Music of the 18th and Early 19th centuries!


Take time at 1:30pm to visit the Tavern for a free family friendly orchestra concert, presented by the Pittsburgh Historical Music Society Orchestra. These musicians are dedicated to performing historic music on period instruments.


This year at 2:45pm & 3:30pm you will have the chance to hear the beautiful four-part singing performed by the Pittsburgh Shape Note singers, lead by Penny Anderson. Early 19th century Hymn books, such as the "Sacred Harp" used notes in four different shapes to indicate the pitch to be sung for the hymn.


Singing


Throughout the Museum grounds, you can visit the "locals" and help with tasks as they carry on their daily activities. See you soon in the 18th Century!
