Fort-Ligonier

The Century Chain
President Dwight D. Eisenhower, seen by 30,000 in Ligonier on September 26, 1958 climaxed his visit with a public address on this site. He sealed into the Century Chain the open Bicentennial Line using an ax from the Fort's artifacts. The President then signed a scroll commemorating the occasion. The Century Chain's links are similar to but slightly larger than the great chain spanning the Hudson River at West Point during the American Revolution. The Century Chain includes iron smelted at one of the old iron furnaces in Ligonier Valley.
