The Cannonsburgh Pioneer Village was built in 1976 as part of a nationwide competition to fund bicentennial projects. It is located near where the original Cannonsburgh existed in the 19th century. The village recreates the living conditions from the 1830s to the 1930s and includes a grist mill, school house, telephone operator's house, a museum, a caboose, the Wedding Chapel, a doctor's office, a general store, a blacksmith's shop, a well, and the world's largest cedar bucket.
Visitors are free to explore the village, and guided tours are offered for a small fee. Postcards, t-shirts, snacks, drinks, and souvenirs are available at the visitor center. The village is open from May 1 through December 1.
