Fort Ligonier

The Fort is a full-scale, on-site reconstruction of the 1758-1766 original, situated on a commanding hilltop in the Laurel Highlands. Numerous living history events and other activities are held throughout the season, which runs from April 1 to October 31. The annual Fort Ligonier Days each October are a whale of a good party, but not the best occasion for historical touring of the site. The fort reconstruction is quite convincing. The Visitor Center has a fine set of exhibits and a remarkably good bookstore (much better than in some larger and more prominent sites).
