Join Our Friends

The Friends of Fort Necessity is in its infancy. Recently a group of people met with one goal in mind: a dedication to the preservation of the history of the Fort Necessity National Battlefield.

The Friends are in the process of working with the National Park Service to plan for the future of the partnership and upcoming events. A strategic planning session in the near future will help identify the many types of projects that the Friends and the National Park Service will jointly accomplish.

In order to memorialize the history of Fort Necessity National Battlefield and its role in the development of the United States, the Friends may choose to raise funds, manage assets and distribute resources, promote volunteerism at the park, and in other ways support Fort Necessity National Battlefield.

If you are interested in joining you may sign up at the Fort Necessity visitor center or e-mail us at: FriendsofFortNecessity@yahoo.com

Mount Washington Tavern

It is estimated there was about one tavern every mile on the National Road. There were different classes of taverns on the road. Stagecoach taverns, wagon stands, and drovers’ inns among them. All taverns regardless of class offered three basic things: food, drink, and lodging.
