2016 Special Events in the Oil Region
Three musical concerts have been scheduled at the Neilltown Church this summer. Concerts at the historic church building begin at 2 p.m. and last until 4 p.m. The site is located just off Route 227, four miles east of Pleasantville.
On Sunday, July 24 the Pine Valley Boys will perform. This lively group hails from the Franklin area and features Jim Miller of Polk.
On Sunday, August 14, Pony Farm Road will perform. They are from the Marienville area and have played at Neilltown Church each year for the past seven years.
On August 28 there will be a Pickin' Party organized by Jim Aaron of Franklin.
Light refreshments are served. Seating is limited; bring a seat cushion or folding chair.
Attendees of the concerts are asked to donate $5 per person since no outside funding was received this year to subsidize the concert series.
On Saturday, August 13, from noon to 4 p.m. tour the rehabilitated Tarbell House at 324 East Main Street in Titusville. This is the one time of the year when this house museum is open to the public. Tours are free.
The historic McClintock-Steele-Waitz House, aka the Coal Oil Johnny House, will be open to the public from 1 to 4 p.m. on Wednesday, August 17. The home of the Oil Region's prodigal son is located next to the Rynd Farm Train Station inside Oil Creek State Park. Tours are free.
