See[edit][add listing]

  • Fort Necessity National Battlefield, [1]. The park site also includes Mt. Washington Tavern, Jumonville Glen and Braddock's Grave. Vastly important bits of history but not a whole lot of interactivity to experience.  edit
  • The National Pike Wagon Train Festival, [2]. Each year in mid-May a reenactment of the wagon train proceeds west down the length of the National Road.  edit
  • Laurel Caverns Geological Park, [3]. A show cave with an easier guided tour and longer spelunking guided tours. Also has an unusual underground miniature golf course.  edit
  • Wharton Furnace, (Wharton Furnace Road, PA Route 2003, two miles south of Route 40). A restored iron furnace, just south on 381. Built by Congressman Andrew Stewart in 1837, it is a stone blast furnace measuring 33 feet wide, 31 feet deep, and 31 feet high. In blast from 1839 to 1850.  edit
