Arts, History Program Set at Ligonier Valley Landmarks


reports, Tribune-Review/Pittsburgh Tribune-Review


A daylong program titled "The Arts and History Through the Valley" will be presented Sunday at six Ligonier Valley historical and cultural landmarks.

Antiochian Heritage Museum, Compass Inn Museum, Fort Ligonier, Ligonier Valley Railroad Museum, Southern Alleghenies Museum of Art and Valley Players of Ligonier (Ligonier Theater) will participate.

Antiochian Heritage Museum, located on Route 711 north of Ligonier, will showcase the architecture of ancient Christian Syria and will feature a visit with a live camel. An exhibit, "Structure and Symbolism in Stone," includes photographs taken during American archaeological expeditions to Syria about 1900, including those of elaborately carved doorways and fifth-century churches. Cookies for children and carrots for the camel will be available. The museum will be open from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. Admission is free.

The Compass Inn Museum will offer a "Weed Walk" and stroll around the museum grounds. The authentically restored 1799 stagecoach stop located on Route 30 east in Laughlintown will be open from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. Admission is $9 for adults and $6 for children 6 to 16.

Fort Ligonier, an 18th-century British fort and museum located at the intersection of Routes 30 and 711, will feature a portrayal of George Washington by Dean Malissa, reprising the role he plays at Mount Vernon, the estate near Washington, D.C., where the first president resided. Drills, musket firings and interactive living history programs will be provided by the Detachment of the 60th Regiment (Royal Americans) encamped at the fort.
