Colonial Court to be re-enacted at site of Westmoreland County's first courthouse.
Step back in time to when the Revolutionary War-era village of Hanna's Town served as the seat of government for Westmoreland County and held the first English courts west of the Allegheny Mountains. Sessions of Colonial Court, featuring actual cases heard at Hanna's Town between 1773 and 1786, will be presented outside the Tavern in Historic Hanna's Town. Among the re-enactors will be several present-day attorneys - including the Hon. William J. Ober, retired judge and David S. DeRose, current Westmoreland County Bar Association president.
Court will be held at 11 AM and 2 PM on Saturday and at 2 PM on Sunday. Admission is $5 for adults and $4 for children and seniors and includes a site tour in addition to court.
Included in the festivities for the day are an open hearth cooking demonstration at the Tavern and 'Christmas in July' specials at the Museum Shop.
