Museum Spotlight: Captain William Vicary Mansion
5:00 PM - 6:00 PM

Sitting atop a gentle knoll overlooking the Ohio River in what is now Freedom, Pennsylvania, sits the stately old mansion built by Captain William Vicary. Long a source of wonder, its unusual construction and elegant style speak of the wealth and status of its former owners. At this virtual program, you will learn about the architectural significance of this site, as well as what fun things you may see during your visit. Following the presentation there will be an opportunity to ask questions and learn more!  

ABOUT CAPTAIN WILLIAM VICARY MANSION:

The Vicary Mansion was built overlooking the Ohio River in 1829 by Captain William Vicary, a retired Philadelphia merchant sea captain and land speculator. Over the years additional changes were made to the buildings and grounds; several unique adaptations allow visitors to observe early 19th century architecture in the house. It is now owned by Beaver County and is occupied by the Beaver County Historical Research and Landmarks Foundation. In addition to house tours, the Vicary Mansion is a very busy place offering many educational, informative, and entertaining programs.

This virtual program is part of a series promoting the Experience Kits initiative at select Allegheny & Washington County Libraries, and is sponsored by the Heinz Center Affiliates Program (HCAP). With your library card, receive free admission passes for up to four people to several local museums and historical sites.
