Forbes Road Fort Dewart Historical Marker

 Over the past 11 years we've been following the Pennsylvania Historical Marker Trail all through our great state and documenting them here on the blog. Millions of people walk or drive by these markers every year and never give them a second thought. They're a great source of historic information and we're trying to bring some much needed attention to them.

Forbes Road Fort Dewart Historical Marker in Somerset County, Pennsylvania

While on the historical marker trail through Somerset County...we came upon the Forbes Road Fort Dewart marker. Here's what it says.

Forbes Road Fort Dewart

The fort on the top of Allegheny Hill was erected in 1758 during the Gen. Forbes expedition against Fort Duquesne. The site is marked half a mile northeast of here, near the head of Breastwork Run.

You can pull off to the side of the road to photograph it for your waymarking records safely. The day we were traffic, so we parked and got out to photograph it. You can check out other Pennsylvania Historical Markers located nearby right on our travel blog.
