The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
Woodville Plantation in Bridgeville is officially open for the season! Located about 15 minutes from downtown Pittsburgh, this historic house & National Historic Landmark was built in 1785 and has so much history to share! Initially the house of John Neville, a Fort Pitt commander and tax collector during the Whiskey Rebellion, our heritage is deeply rooted in Western Pennsylvania and the city of Pittsburgh. As one of the oldest residences in the city, and an excellent example of the developments in local architecture, and daily life in the late 1700s and early 1800s, Woodville has something for every enthusiast.
Tour Guides, "docents", learn the history & significance of the house, and lead Sunday tours of our property.
There are many other opportunities, such as helping in our gift shop, on special program days with food preparation, helping with American Heritage Chocolate Demonstration, etc.
Please contact us via email, on our Facebook(www.Facebook.com/Woodvilleplantation), or give us a call! I'm in the office to talk or answer any questions Mondays & Thursdays 11-4, and Fridays 11-3.
