Fort Necessity National Battlefield marks the site of an important battle that took place in 1754, one that sparked the French and Indian War. Book an RV rental in Farmington, Pennsylvania, and tour this magnificent historical site.
Today the fort serves as a memorial to the area's history; the site was declared a National Battlefield in 1931. Archeologists began the difficult task of reconstructing the fort. Its shape and structure were clarified around 1952, resulting in the structures that exist in the historic landmark today. Follow the walking path to Great Meadow to view the fort, or traverse the rustic hiking trails weaving through the property. The visitor center features videos and exhibits focusing on the French and Indian War and George Washington's ties to the site.
