A national historic district, West Overton remains a surprisingly complete 19th century rural industrial village and is now an indoor/outdoor museum.
The town was established in 1800 by German Mennonites, an often extreme and persecuted Christian sect. It is best known as the birthplace of industrialist and art collector Henry Clay Frick (1849-1919). Today it is the only pre-American Civil War village still intact in Pennsylvania.
