Whiskey distilling has been a tradition at West Overton since 1803. Henry Overholt, who purchased the original 263 acres of land, installed a two-still distillery with a capacity of 150 gallons. Whiskey was a popular spirit throughout the 19th century and uniquely important to western Pennsylvania.
The West Overton Distillery Museum features life-size dioramas that highlight the industries of West Overton Village between 1800 and 1919. Showcased are coverlet weaving, coal and coke production and whiskey distillation. The museums are closed for regular tours during October thru April.
