HISTORICAL SITE DETAILS

Fort Loudoun

Pennsylvania

Fort Loudoun was built in 1756 to protect the settlers. It served as a supply and rendezvous point during the 1758 Forbes campaign against Ft. Duquesne and as a communication link for Colonel Henry Bouquet's 1763 expedition during Pontiac's Rebellion, and in 1764 when Bouquet marched into the Muskegon River Valley of Ohio to sign a peace treaty with the Native Americans. The actual location of the fort is at N. Brooklyn Road, off Route 30, 13 miles west of Chambersburg. The visitor will see the reconstructed fort stockade, on the exact and original location. The Patton House Museum is a 1798 log house, with wood siding.
