  • Great historical site which highlights an early battle of the French and Indian War between British colonial forces under the command of Colonel George Washington and French and Native Americans led by Louis Coulon de Villers. There is a large visitor center with plenty of parking. The visitor center houses rest rooms, a small theater, gift shop, play area, and museum. The fort that you see today is a reconstruction of the original which was destroyed after the battle in 1754. Fort Necessity National Battlefield also highlights the Mount Washington Tavern which served as an inn along the National Road, the grave of British General Edward Braddock, and the site of the Battle of Jumonville Glenn. Braddock's grave site and the Jumonville Glenn are are short drive away from the Fort Necessity National Battlefield Visitor Center.
  • Very interesting place to visit. The rebuilt fort accurately shows you just how dire of a situation Gen Washington would have been in. Fish in a barrel essentially. Perfect place to stop by on the way to Ohiopyle or Fallingwater.
  • I remember the 1st time I went was 1970 and I was 5, my Precious Mom, her Sister Donna (deedee) and her mom..(mama) went and from that day forward History is what soothes me..They did confuse me though as I got a fake long wood rifle ooops..hope OBAMA does not read an indian vest {plastic} and a 3 way hat..... so..not sure what side i was on so i just shot everyone..well, I am 51 and disabled, and Dream of visiting here 1 more time...sadly, the 3 women mentioned here are all gone 2 days mom will be with God 8 years..and mama and deedee died in 2004 when a truck ran them off a clift in this reminds me that Life was great once... now, It is over...anyhow GO VISIT AND HAVE FUN!
  • What a gem. Gorgeous and updated and rich in history, highly recommended. It is close by to all of our 35+ vacation rental homes in the Laurel Highlands area.
  • Great historical stop. Went during memorial day. They had some fun events going on. I love national history and is great to see artifacts from this period in time.
