2016 United Way Day of Caring Event helps Old Economy Village

This article by David Taube originally appeared in the Beaver County Times.

AMBRIDGE –  A state historical site that has undergone staff reductions received some help from more than a dozen volunteers Wednesday.

Old Economy Village in Ambridge, once the home of a religious group known as the Harmonists, was one of several sites visited by volunteers for the United Way of Beaver County’s 25th annual Day of Caring.  A crew from different companies from across the county helped paint a blacksmith shop on the 6-acre site, where buildings, artifacts and other items give people a glimpse into the historic society, which settled there in 1824.

“For future generations, I’m glad to work on this project,” Heritage Valley Pediatrics secretary Debby Kroll said while painting the white building. “This is a piece of history that will eventually be gone.”

United Way Executive Director Mike Rubino said 117 people helped for the event at locations including libraries, mental health organizations and health care providers. At Old Economy, the blacksmith shop used to be a carriage house, but now it features a forge. Staff and volunteers are renovating the building to reshingle the roof and make two forges.
