Welcome to Old Economy Village

Our Hours Are Changing!

Old Economy Village is changing its hours and days of operation


Beginning January 2, 2015 Old Economy Village is changing its hours and days of operation. The Old Economy Village Visitor Center, including the Village Rose Museum Store, will be open year-round on Tuesday through Saturday, from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m., with extended evening hours until 8 p.m. on Wednesdays and Thursdays. The Visitor Center will also be open every second Sunday of each month from Noon until 5 p.m. The Old Economy Village historic site will be open on this same daily schedule from April 1 until December 31. The historic site and visitor center will be closed on all other Sundays, Mondays and all major holidays (you can always check our website or give us a call at (724) 266-4500 if you’re not sure).

Visiting the permanent and temporary exhibits in the Visitor Center is FREE! First up, we will be mounting a new temporary exhibit on Harmonist furnishings and woodworking, which is scheduled to open by February 1. We are also scheduling classes, lectures, behind-the-scenes tours, and some exciting new members-only events. If you want to be a part of these new offerings, consider becoming a member of the Friends of Old Economy Village. For more information on Membership, you can check out the Membership page of our website or contact Nichole Remmert at (724) 266-4500, ext. 114 or via email at c-nremmert@pa.gov.

Now is also a great time to sign up to be a volunteer with Old Economy Village. We have several opportunities and we will be conducting volunteer training over the winter. The Volunteer page on our website has more information on volunteer positions and benefits. Please contact Sandy Carroll at (724) 266-4500, ext. 120 or via email at c-scarroll@pa.gov for more information.

We have some exciting things planned for the next several months – be sure to keep checking our website, Facebook, and follow us on Twitter for updates.
