The Friends of Old Economy Village would like to thank the following generous supporter of this event:
This event will allow home school families to explore the Village at a special education rate of $5 per child and per parent or guardian. Students will get a chance to visit the 15 historic buildings like the Community Kitchen, Natural History Museum, and the Mechanics Building. See the Blacksmith and the Printer, and learn about life in the 1830’s. Try some hands on activities such as making rope and 19th century children’s games. Old Economy Village was founded in 1824 by a German pietistic Christian communal society called the Harmonists. They built their town 17 miles north of Pittsburgh along the Ohio River in modern day Ambridge. You must register for one of these dates by Wednesday, April 25.
Old Economy Village will be closed for Memorial Day.
Enjoy a “good ole” American summer time celebration for the entire family. Antique cars and bicycles will be on display. Food, historic artisans, musical entertainment, and family style games and activities create a wonderful experience for the entire family.
