Penn's Woods: Plenty for the Use of Man

Our latest exhibit highlights the regional history of woodworking and carpentry. While promoting his new colony, William Penn proclaimed the forests had "plenty for the use of man." From the forests emerged building techniques, tools, trades, and crafts that helped make Westmoreland County what it is today. Explore this history through historic woodworking tools, furnishings, photographs, documents, and stories across centuries.
