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

Jesse Peirsol, a wagoner remembers one night at a tavern where there were 30 six-horse teams parked in the wagon yard, 100 mules in a pen, 1,000 hogs in an enclosure and as many cattle in the field. He said he would never forget “the music made by this large number of hogs, in eating corn.”
