In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Fort Ligonier and Braddock Battlefield History Center will close to the public on Monday, March 16, 2020 through Tuesday, March 31, 2020. There will be no public access to either facility during this time. All special events scheduled at the Fort will similarly be suspended. The Fort and BBHC will reopen on Wednesday, April 1, 2020, unless events dictate a continuance of this suspension.
Decisions like these are not made lightly, but the Fort and BBHC have decided that suspending its public access is the most responsible action we can take under the circumstances for our employees, visitors and communities.
