Bushy Run Battlefield, Jeannette

Colonel Henry Bouquet and a force of approximately 400 British soldiers left Carlisle in July to relieve the besieged Fort Pitt and end a series of unchecked attacks against frontier outposts. The opening of western Pennsylvania to settlement was the result of a decisive victory over the Native Americans at the Battle of Bushy Run, August 5th and 6th, 1763. Highlights of the site include the interpretive exhibit, “The March to Bushy Run” at the site’s visitor center, as well as guided and self-guided tours, special events and educational programs.

  • My family and I went to visit but, unknown to us, it was off season. The curator, who was inside, saw us and asked us to come in. They turned on all the displays for us and gave us an individualized tour. What great leadership and customer service. We will definitely go back.
  • What a great place to take the family for free. Beautiful trails to walk and have a little bit of a history lesson. I even like to hike with my 🐕.
