Arts & Museums
The Hoyt Institute of Fine Arts is located in 2 princely heritage mansions on a hill that were owned by the Hoyt family. The Greek Revival architecture serves as a superb backdrop to the events held here like discussions, competitions, guided tours, art workshops, community parties and cultural festivals. Admission is free. Check website for a list of permanent exhibits and upcoming exhibitions.
The Maridon Museum is housed inside a building donated by the generous Mary Hulton Phillips. This museum is perhaps one of the few whose sole focus is Asian Art. Occasionally one will also find a number of German Meissen porcelain exhibits. The gallery halls are replete with Chinese paintings decorated with silk, ivory and jade sculptures, old scrolls, luminous porcelain exhibits and more. Check website for details.
The Zelienople region of the Butler County is endowed with one of the prime historical structures in the form of the Passavant House. The house stands on a land area of less than one acre. Its construction dates back to the year 1809. The two and a half story building is predominantly a house built by utilzing brick elements. Presently, the house serves adequately as a museum, library as well as the headquarters for the Zelienople Historical Society. It has been listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
