Proceeds benefit the programs and preservation of Woodford Mansion, a National Historic Landmark built in 1756. Woodford has been operated by the Naomi Wood Trust as an historic house museum since 1930 and displays the Naomi Wood Collection of 18th-century decorative and fine arts. Last year, the Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission awarded Woodford a matching grant to restore areas of the mansion that were used as work and living spaces by enslaved African domestic servants in the 18th century. Once completed, these behind-the-scenes restorations will allow new parts of the mansion to be opened to the public and help tell a fuller story of the enslaved and indentured servants who served Woodford’s early owners. Your support of CiderFest at Woodford Mansion will help us meet our grant goals.
