The Yough Valley Tour, initially planned for 2020, is now scheduled for June 10-12, 2022.
This year’s tour emphasizes the relationship that farming in southwestern Pennsylvania had to the genesis and development of industries. Many of the original owners of farms on our tour operated farm-based industries—from iron smelting to distilling; from shipping to paper mills; from coal mines to beehive coke ovens. The Yough Valley (pronounced “yock” to rhyme with “jock”) is home to the West Overton Village, a distillery farm established by a Mennonite family from eastern Pennsylvania, and will be the starting point of our tour. The annual meeting will be held in the large brick Overholt Barn, which may be largest brick barn in the state.
