In the mid 18th century, French, British and American Indians were competing for control of the Ohio River Valley and its resources.  The events in and around the Great Meadows in 1754 set affairs into motion that affect American and world history to this day.

The main park unit contains the reconstructed Fort Necessity, the historic Mount Washington Tavern, a picnic area, and hiking trails. At the Interpretive and Education Center, the twenty minute movie, "Road of Necesstiy" and interactive exhibits immerse you in history. Visit the website or call today for additional information.
