“journey back to the 18th century”
Welcome to Fort Ligonier. Journey back to the 18th century to a place where the flag of His Majesty King George still flies. During your visit, you will explore the museum galleries and the impressive Fort, a full-scale, on-site restoration/reconstruction of the 1758 – 1766 original, situated on a commanding hilltop in the beautiful Laurel Highlands.
Fort Ligonier was a vital part of the French and Indian War, decades before the Revolutionary War. It was here at this fort that our first president, George Washington, cut his teeth as a 26-year old colonel. Much of the original fort grounds remain, and what has been destroyed over time has been lovingly reconstructed on the site. In addition to touring the fort, take a few minutes to visit the museum to learn more about the fort’s importance. (Plus, they have a special George Washington Collection you’ll want to see.)
