National Park Service Rangers typically give tours of Fort Necessity National Battlefield three times a day during the summer (mid-June through the end of August), and the tour is usually followed by a historic weapons firing demonstration. Combined, the program lasts one hour. Tours begin at the Visitor Center and end at the reconstructed fort, which is a short, leisurely walk away. There is no need to register, so just show up at tour time. For the current schedule, see the National Park Service’s official Ranger Program web page for the park.

Special programs and events are also held at Fort Necessity National Battlefield. Check the National Park Service’s official Calendar web page for a schedule.
