HISTORICAL SITE DETAILS

Dunbar’s Camp (Jumonville)

Hopwood, Pennsylvania

Dunbar's Camp was the westernmost point reached by General Braddock's supply train during the 1755 march to the Forks of the Ohio. When the survivors of Braddock's Defeat reached the camp, Col. Thomas Dunbar, Braddock's second in command, decided to destroy the tons of ordnance and supplies at the camp and quickly retreat eastward. Dunbar's Camp is now one of the richest archeological sites in the history of colonial America. Braddock Road Preservation Association holds an annual seminar on the French and Indian War every November. There is a museum on the site which is open by appointment only. Hiking trails are open to the public. Visitors will be greeted by the beautiful campus that constitutes the Jumonville Conference Center, with adjacent woodland trails, a walk to the "Cross" on Dunbar's Knob, and nearby Jumonville Glen.
