Visiting Fort Necessity is a great way for your students to learn history. Your class can attend one or more of the following 45 minute stations. Groups larger than 30 students should be divided. You will need at least one station for each group of 30 students. Then the groups will rotate through the selected stations.
Guided program at the reconstructed fort by a park ranger
Guided tour of the 1830s stagecoach stop, the Mount Washington Tavern, which is now a furnished museum
Guided program on the American Indians and how they related to the British and French through trade
Introductory film about George Washington, the Battle at Fort Necessity and the National Road (20 minutes) and self-guided time in the exhibits and/or bookstore
The park also has a picnic area where students may eat lunch.
There is a $1/student program fee. These tours are offered weekdays in the spring and fall. Please contact the park to check availability.
