Fort-Necessity

This site of the Battle of Fort Necessity was always dear to the heart of George Washington. In 1769 He purchased this farm of 234 acres on which the battle took place and held it to the time of his death. He described it in his will as follows: "This land is valuable on account of its local situation and other properties. It affords an exceeding good stand on Braddock's Road from Fort Cumberland to Pittsburg. Beares a fertile soil. Possesses a large quantity of natural meadow fit for the scythe. It is distinguished by the appellation of the great meadows where the first action with the French in the year 1754 was fought.
