Expansion

NEW! Coming in Spring 2017! Fort Ligonier Center for History Education.

Fort Ligonier is excited to welcome educators, students, re-enactors, and visitors to the new Center for History Education. Opening in May 2017, this beautiful, new space with its inspirational view of the Fort will enhance our efforts to educate, entertain, and enthrall the public about the local, national, and world history that took place at Fort Ligonier and throughout the valley.

About the Fort Ligonier Center for History Education:

  • A year-round facility for educational programming, workshops, lectures, and exhibitions
  • First floor offers 5,277 square feet of new program space
  • Accommodates 280 guest’s theater style; 150 classroom style or round tables
  • Elevated platform for presenter, speakers, and panel discussions.
  • Connects to the Museum and is easily accessible to the historic site
  • Patio with outdoor seating adjacent to center
  • Large glass doors and windows offer a sweeping view of Fort

Instilling a love for history, creating an engaging and fun learning environment while explaining American colonial frontier life during the British-French struggle for empire is a goal for Fort Ligonier’s Education Department. The new center will provide much-needed space to expand our hands-on, interactive educational programs that appeal to students of all ages. The center will also be a hub for the Education Department’s Teacher Workshops, Kids Camps, Cannonball Club, Scout programs and more!
