The Warren County Historical Society is working in conjunction with the Allegheny National Forest to organize a group of interested citizens to help formulate a plan for the future of the historic Irvine-Newbold Estate in Irvine.
Since the mansion, barns and outbuildings were torn down in 1973, the land has rapidly become overgrown with vegetation making it difficult to distinguish landmarks of this once-beautiful and vast farm. In recent years the Wilder Museum of Warren County History, a holding of the Warren County Historical Society, has held a walking tour event with volunteers who were knowledgeable of the former layout of the property. The Allegheny National Forest and the historical society would like volunteers to help create a self-guided walking tour of the estate.
Anyone interested in helping organize a plan for the future of the Irvine-Newbold Estate, is invited to the Wilder Museum at 51 Erie Ave., Irvine, on Saturday, Sept. 22, at 11 a.m. The group will walk the estate if weather permits. Plan to wear comfortable walking shoes. For more information, call 723-1795.
