Warden House

Historic House Tour


This fall the Westmoreland Historical Society (WHS) will again open doors to the remarkable history of Westmoreland County during our annual Historic House Tour with two events.

  • Toast the Tour

    Friday evening, September 8 from 6 to 8 PM

    Cocktails and hors d'oeuvre along with a private tour will be held at the c. 1929 Joseph & Alma Cote House - Hillcrest - Grey Gables - Bishop's House south of Greensburg. 

    Tickets for the Toast the Tour cocktail party are $75 and require advance purchase from the Historical Society.

    Tickets are limited; please call to reserve tickets: 724-836-1800 x210

  • Self-Driving Tour

    Saturday, Sept. 16 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

    The Saturday tour features seven houses in the Mount Pleasant area dating from 1785 to 1904.

    Since 2007 the WHS has provided a historic house tour in the fall. During Covid years, it was virtual, but the in-person format has returned!  The homes and lives of the people of Westmoreland County reflect the history of America and the important role our county has played.

    National and world events are carried out, or reflected, at the local level by our family, neighbors, and friends.  History can be told in their stories – in our stories.  The Historic House Tour is part of the Westmoreland Historical Society’s ongoing effort to move history from the abstract “past” and make it real to you.

    All ticket holders receive a map with directions to each location and a keepsake booklet with historical information.

    Advance sale tickets for the Saturday Tour are $25 and can be purchased at:  

    • The Museum Shop at the Westmoreland History Education Center (809 Forbes Trail Road, Greensburg),
    • By phone (724-836-1800 x210), 

    On tour day, tickets are $30 and may be purchased at the Museum Shop.
