The Home of John and Presley Neville, circa 1780
Woodville, the John and Presley Neville house, is Southwestern Pennsylvania’s principal link to the late 18th century, interpreting the time period of 1780-1825 and documenting the lives of the three families that resided there, the Nevilles (1775-1815), the Cowans (1815-1835), and the Wrenshalls (1835-1975).
In a year dedicated to a comprehensive restoration of the the of the ‘House’ we are excited to have recently finished the repair and restoration of the porches. Along the way we discovered some artifacts and the remnants of the original stoop to the front door that preceded the building of the porches in the early 1800s. A paint analysis also revealed an unexpected color scheme with the porch decks being a dark brown and the ceiling of the porch a sky blue. Please stop by and see how this changes the character of the building.
