Today, Lindsey and I stopped by Woodville Plantation just south of Pittsburgh, a country/wilderness/frontier mansion owned by John Neville--a man socially comparable to Edward Hand (of Rockford Plantation, Lancaster). That museum also interprets the the late 1700s to early 1800s and boasts a small cadre of costumed docents. (Sorry, no pictures, we forgot our camera.)
Lindsey seemed to be very impressed by the authenticity of the costumes, and it was evident the docents put much time into research for a first-person impression and research on Neville and his house. It's a small-scale operation, but if you're in the area, we recommend you attend one of their events this year.
