At West Overton, you will have the opportunity to step into the Distillery, built in 1859, in which Old Farm Pure Rye Whiskey was once produced.

You will have the opportunity to visit the historic Abraham Overholt Homestead, built in 1838, and step into the very rooms in which Abraham and Mariah Overholt spent their time; you will see the accounting desk used by Abraham along with the preservation efforts made by Helen Clay Frick, daughter of Industrialist Henry Clay Frick, upon her purchase of the site in 1922.

You can see how the village represents the transformation of American culture from an agrarian society with the production of the coverlets manufactured at West Overton and the distilling operation to the Industrial society with the excavation of coal and ultimately the production of coke, a necessary ingredient for steel. You will also step into the Spring House that served as the birthplace of Henry Clay Frick in 1849.
