Friendship Hill


Friendship Hill is the estate of Albert Gallatin, a Swiss immigrant who served his adopted country in public and private life for nearly seven decades. An entrepreneur, politician, diplomat, financier, and scholar who was a major influence in the shaping of our early republic, Gallatin was instrumental in financing the Louisiana Purchase and the Lewis and Clark Expedition, ending the War of 1812, developing the National Road, and mitigating the Whiskey Rebellion. Gallatin's accomplishments and contributions to the late eighteenth and early nineteenth century American Republic are highlighted through exhibits and programs presented in his restored Friendship Hill house.

The grounds of the park are lovely and tranquil, with woods, meadows, trails, and a picnic area. A self-guided audio house tour and "Reflections of Gallatin" presentation are offered throughout the year. During the summer season (Memorial Day through Labor Day) ranger lead house tours are offered daily with concerts, special programs and lectures on weekends. The park is part of the National Park Service and is admistered jointly with the Fort Necessity National Battlefield.
