Hanna’s Town, founded in 1773, holds a special place in American history as site of the first English courts west of the Allegheny Mountains and because it tells the little-known story of the western campaign of the Revolutionary War. In 1775, stalwart citizens drafted and signed the Hanna’s Town Resolves – a strong challenge to British authority prior to the Declaration of Independence. Destroyed by Native Americans and their British allies in 1782, today guided tours of this reconstructed frontier settlement reveal daily life and the struggles, decisions and events in western Pennsylvania during the American Revolution. Costumed guides interpret the reconstructed fort, courthouse/tavern, and jail. By reservation, groups of 20 or more can witness a reenactment of actual court case(s) heard at Hanna’s Town 1773-1786.
