Guided tours of this reconstructed frontier settlement describe daily life and events in western Pennsylvania during the American Revolution. The Hanna’s Town Resolves, adopted May 16, 1775, proclaimed citizen’s willingness to protect their rights by taking up arms against Great Britain. Explore the western campaign of the Revolutionary War, which was characterized by Indian warfare.  Frontier defense was left largely to each community and the local militia.. On July 13, 1782, Hanna’s Town was attacked and burned by Native Americans & their British allies in one of the final conflicts of the Revolutionary War. The town never recovered, but the site’s subsequent conversion to farmland in the early 1800s preserved it as an archaeological time capsule of 1770 frontier colonial life. It remains an almost unique resource in this area. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
