To view the Historic 19th Century Village 

You must purchase your ticket at the Visitor Center.  Friends of Old Economy Village members and Ambridge Resident Pass holders must present their card at the Visitor Center.  The guest experience begins with a 13-minute orientation video at the Visitor Center. There are also exhibits to explore at the Visitor Center. 

Guests may walk or drive 2 blocks to begin their visit to the historic site at the Feast Hall on Church Street.  A portion of the site is guided by a docent. There are typically two half hour guided tours unless a special event is taking place. One guided tour features the Rapp Houses (every half hour 10:45-3:15 except 12:45), and the other shows the buildings on the Cobblestone Street (every half hour 10:30-3:30 except 12:00). All else is self-guided. Visitors should allow approximately 2 hours to see everything.

We are more than happy to accommodate larger groups or special tour requests. We are currently accepting reservations for Wednesdays through Sundays. For more information please contact David Miller at (724) 266-4500 x 110.

In keeping with the guidelines of the PHMC, individuals with disabilities who need special assistance or accommodation to participate in this program at Old Economy Village should call (724) 266-4500 in advance to discuss their needs.  Pennsylvania TDD relay service is available at (800) 654-5984.
