Old Economy Village will have 19th century trade demonstrations and other exciting activities every Saturday from April through September. Today our volunteer gardeners are eager to show off the elegant 19th century gardens. They will be available from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.. These volunteers spend a rather large number of hours tending to the garden and will be available for questions and to give a brief tour of the garden. To enter the Village, Visitors must first pay admission at the Visitor Center, 270 16th St., Ambridge, PA 15003. We encourage visitors to take a tour of the Village to understand the unique story of the Harmony Society. Tour times are 10:30 a.m., Noon, 1:30 p.m., 3:00 p.m. If people want to wander through the grounds and focus solely on the gardening they are allowed to do so with a regular admission fee.
