During this world-wide health concern, the schedule for the Sturgeon House is on hold.  We plan to offer our traditional Memorial Weekend Exhibit, which will remain through the summer.  We also hope to sponsor a Yard Sale in June.  Call the Sturgeon House, 814-474-5855, for further information on these activities.  Our 200 Club tickets will be available soon.  Call if you would like one.


The Sturgeon House does not schedule regular open hours.  Meetings are held in April, May, September, October and occasionally in November on the third Wednesday of the month beginning at 7 p.m.  The public is invited to attend and admission is free. 

Other open hours include the Open House during the Memorial Weekend: Sunday, from Noon until 4 p.m. and Monday, Memorial Day, from 10:30 a.m. (after the parade) to 4 p.m. The French Creek Reenactors Association traditionally has reenactors in our side lawn during this weekend.  All reenactors welcome visitors and questions!

The Sturgeon House will also be open during the Summer Yard Sale, date to be announced.. Often we are privileged to have World War II reenactors on the side lawn during a weekend in the summer.  Watch for dates on this event.  The Sturgeon House will be open those same dates and times.

As always, the Sturgeon House hosts a Christmas at the Sturgeon House the first full weekend of December. The House is decorated for Christmas, the Misery Bay Dulcimers provide seasonal music for a few hours each day and we serve wassail and cookies to all who attend.  This is also the opportunity to pick up pre-ordered door wreaths.  Hours for this two-day event are:  Saturday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Sunday, Noon to 4 p.m.  As always, the public is invited to attend and admission is free.  

Watch the West County News Journal for our monthly column, this website and our Facebook page-  SturgeonHouse/ – for information on upcoming events.

    1. Hello, Jan Schmitt,

      I can send you a “press release” each time we have an event or open house. Or it can be a shorter, informal notice. Your choice. I guess that means the answer is yes, we can send you updates.
