  • A forgotten battle in a forgotten war. A reminder that a future great leader made a basic tactical mistake at age 22. Philosophizing aside, this visitor center has well done displays, from wampum belt...  more »
  • I learned a lot while visiting the visitor center at this National Park. There are beautiful grounds to walk, a picnic grove back in the woods, the fort and the old inn. Don't miss the movie at the vi...  more »
  • I thought we'd spend maybe 30 minutes here, but this visitors center has much to offer, both in regard to the French & Indian War, and the National Road. The displays were excellent. I read every word...  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
  • Excellent. They have done a good job of building a new visitors center.
