Fort Necessity National Battlefield

This historical site marks the first battlefield of the American French and Indian War.

Reviewed By LadyTravellingLight

A forgotten battle in a forgotten war. A reminder that a future great leader made a basic tactical mistake at age 22.
Philosophizing aside, this visitor center has well done displays, from wampum belts (who knew that they could be "read" in various native languages?) to battlefield artifacts to dioramas of the National Road.
The short video is interesting. Walk out to the battlefield meadow to see-- and feel --why it was such a poor choice but nonetheless a necessity...
Stop by if you have time at the Washington Tavern (access from Visitor Center parking road)

Pennsylvania's Historic National Road Headquarters

Reviewed By vintagetrailer - Helena, MT

During the Revolutionary war my paternal great, great, great . . . moved to the area. He and his son were in that war and later his son got into trouble with the powers that be by being too much in the middle of the Whiskey Rebellion.

But the elder one was in the US Congress and the National Road was one of his pet projects. I guess today you'd say he was bringing the pork back to his home but the West at the time needed good transportation routes to get their goods to Eastern markets. That was what the Whiskey Rebellion was about, trying to figure a way to convert grain to something a Westerner could transport and sell.

I had worked long distance with the Fayette County Historical Society on family related matters and was glad to see his exhibit.

Great way to spend the day.

Kentuck Knob

Reviewed By bvlesterdesign - Washington DC, District of Columbia

Honestly found this property more compelling a creation than the famous Fallingwater.
Once discovering that Wright actually never saw the finished product makes it that much more brilliant.
Filled with custom furniture and otherworldly interactive details, it’s an absolute marvel!
Take the opportunity to photograph yourself amongst the beautiful mountainous backdrop in the rear of the property

The Great Cross of Christ

Reviewed By apuhak - Pittsburgh

The Great Cross of Christ is on the property of Jumonville Christian Camp. It is private property, but they welcome visitors during daylight hours. Access is by walking up a reasonably steep paved path, but it is worth it once you make it to the top. It is serine, relaxing, and would be a great place to find God if you should be in need.

Laurel Caverns

Cave with 2.8 miles of underground passages: great for viewing weird rock formations.

Reviewed By Graeme M - Hamilton, Canada

I'm not a cave snob & have hardly toured such places but this place definitely satisfies the experience. Christian was my guide and he did a wonderful job explaining the geophysics of the place as well as giving a humorous low down on the history of its development into a tourist site. There's lots to see for the casual explorer like me or the more advanced rock climber or cave hiker.

The State Theatre offers a season of professional, nationally touring productions in our historic theatre, originally opening in 1922 as a movie palace and vaudeville house. We offer a classic film series, concerts and many special events. Tours of the beautiful, Thomas Lamb designed theatre are available during business hours, Monday through Friday from 9AM to 5PM.

Reviewed By Joie D - Uniontown, Pennsylvania

I am a season subscriber to the State Theatre Center for the Arts. I feel it is one of the best values around. The live performances that I have been able to see at the State Theatre are the same shows that others travel to Pittsburgh and beyond to see. These are wonderful productions and Uniontown should be proud to host this beautiful venue. From musicals to plays to local events, you won't be disappointed.

This is a really big store. It has 3 floors of antiques and crafts. Lots to look at. Prices are reasonable and workers were friendly and knowledgeable. They even had free baked goods. Plan to spend some time because of it's size.

The Countree Cupboard & Christmas Shop

Reviewed By Elsie M - Howell, Michigan

First I have seen this shop with multiple names. The Countree Cupboard & Christmas Shop, The Christmas Shop & Countree Cupboard and The Historic Christmas Shop Seasonal Gifts Downer House Antique Mall. The latter name is on the sign out front. I had to call several times to verify I had the right business my family and I visited Memorial Day weekend. My allergies were bothering me so I wasn't able to stay more than an hour. Within that hour I managed to do some serious browsing. I collect candy canes however; I wasn't able to find any that caught my eye. I am told the preserves are note worthy. A family member gave them a glowing review. We picked up some Blackberry Preserves and Apple Butter to try. The jams and jellies are from local sources within an hour of the shop. They stock PA preferred Program items meaning all products with this label are certified as having been made in Pennsylvania. Their wonderful collection of teas comes from local sources and around the world. The antique dealers and crafters rent space to showcase their treasures. They can be found in the original shop and the Countree Cupboard the building next door. The Christmas shop has two floors. Literally every inch of space has some eye catching item for sale. There are beautifully designed displays of merchandise everywhere. If you are an ornament collector like me, treasure hunting or looking for seasonal gifts this shop is worth the trip. You could easily spend an hour or two here browsing. Their website states, "Everything for the Merriest, Most Magical Christmas Ever." I think they are correct, go check it out and see for yourself. There is a cozy little sitting area outside for those needing to rest or if you have little ones who would prefer romping instead of shopping. This establishment is kind enough to list other local attractions you might enjoy in on near Chalk Hill. To my surprise, I discovered within the past thirty years of celebrating Memorial Day in Uniontown my family and I have visited six of the ten attractions they suggest. I have know idea how we missed this wonderful shop. The Historic Christmas Shop Seasonal Gifts Downer House Antique Mall is only a twenty minute drive from Uniontown, PA. The hours are daily from 10:00 am till 5:00 pm.

Cucumber Falls

Reviewed By mgw10 - pittsburgh

This is a lovely place to start a hike. You can either head down to the falls and hike on a more difficult trail along the water or stay at the top of the falls and travel a much flatter and easier trail on a ledge above the river. We did both on a beautiful fall day. I recommend.
