Description

Fort Ligonier is a full-scale, on-site reconstruction of the 1758-1766 original British fort, situated on a commanding hilltop in the beautiful Laurel Highlands region.

During the eight years of its existence as a garrison, Fort Ligonier was never taken by an enemy. It served as a post of passage to the new Fort Pitt, and during Pontiac's War of 1763, was a vital link in the British communication and supply lines. The fort was decommissioned from active service in 1766.

In addition to exploring the Fort, its buildings and artillery batteries, visitors enjoy touring the museum which features the French & Indian War Art Gallery and the History Gallery.

Its hours are Sunday, Noon to 4:30 p.m. and Monday through Saturday, 10:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
