Woodville, built by General John Neville in 1775, was the country home of Colonel Presley Neville, and is Western Pennsylvania’s principal link to the late 18th century. A rare example of Virginia-style architecture in Western PA, the interiors of the home reflect the period of 1780-1820 and include meticulously researched and restored furnishings, wall coverings and paint.

The Allegheny County Committee of the National Society of The Colonial Dames of America in the State of Pennsylvania, is involved in ongoing restoration efforts throughout the house.

The house and the surrounding three acres is owned by the Neville House Associates Inc. (501c3), and is maintained and operated as a living history farm and museum of life in the Federal period of American history.
