Amidst the foothills of the mountains in the Laurel Highlands lies a pleasant town rich in history, hospitality, and honor.
Things to Do
West Overton Museum
Let's start the day at the West Overton Museum. This historic landmark is the only remaining intact pre-Civil War village in our fair Commonwealth. The story goes beyond the historic birthplace of industrialist Henry Clay Frick to the Overholt family and their Whiskey Distillery.
Mount Pleasant Glass Museum
An intriguing stop at the Mount Pleasant Glass Museum, celebrating decades of amazing art with glass in this historic glass-making community. Displays from three local glass companies that created blown and cut glassware in Mount Pleasant for over a century: Bryce Brothers, Lenox, and L.E. Smith. Among our treasures is the first glass headlight lenses made for the Ford Model T car and glassware used in the White House from the 1920's to today. While here, engage in a demonstration from a glass artist and you might wish to include a visit to shop at the adjacent glass warehouse.
Mount Pleasant Veterans Park
The Memorial Wall in the Veterans Park located in the heart of the uptown Mount Pleasant Historic District, is an impressive piece of history for generations to appreciate. Be sure to take in the uniquity of the digital Memorial Wall, the first outside of Washington D.C. A special acknowledgement, a presentation of the colors and a tribute will be offered by a local organization for service men and women when specifically requested.
