  • Back in the 50s & 60s my family stopped here several times on vacations and weekend jaunts, I think I was here once again in the 70s but not again until now. The National Park System has done a wonder...  more »
  • Had a chance to stop and take a look. We were driving down HWY 68 where we saw the signs for the battle field. We arrived after the visitors center had closed, but it is a self guided tour out to the ...  more »
  • The visitor center includes high-quality and very thorough (if not always crystal clear) exhibits on both the battle of Fort Necessity and the National Road. Expect to spend about an hour here between...  more »
  • An absolutely wonderful site. The interpretive center is top notch and the staff very friendly and helpful. The site is beautifully well maintained and offers a great opportunity to learn about the French and Indian War. Plan on about an hour to an hour and a half to see everything and longer if you wish to hike the grounds.
  • A surprising display inside we stopped cause we saw a sign and thought it would be neat. Far surpassed my expectations and the Fort my goodness you don't realize how small it was till you go ... No wonder we surrendered. It's not a place for hours but for a quick stop it's pretty awesome.
  • It's interesting for fans of history and George Washington. The whole area is full of fascinating pivotal historical events.
  • Came here to get a Access Pass for a trip to the Carolinas in the future. Havent been to the new visitor facility in 13 years and learned it is a new one. Way better than the old one. It is nice how they twine the National Road and the French and Indian War together in one center. Did visit the two other units as well on this visit
  • Great visitors center that ties the battle, George Washington, and the history of the openning of the road through the mountains to the Ohio valley. Good Junior Ranger program for kids too.
