The Quecreek Mine Rescue took place in Somerset County on a 212 year old dairy farm. Home of the miraculous rescue of nine miners trapped in a flooded coal mine in July of 2002, this site continues to be an inspiration to all. As you visit the rescue site, you are encourages to listen to the details of the rescue from beginning to end, enjoy the artifacts, touch the actual yellow rescue capsule that brought the men up from 240 feet below the earth, take pictures of the site where the men were brought up from beneath and feel the presence of hope, faith and victory that allowed this place of a miraculous rescue.
The impressive fort, finest of its type in North America, is a full-scale, on-site reconstruction of the 1758–1766 original, situated on a commanding hilltop in the beautiful Laurel Highlands. Enriching living history activities and pageantry such as reenactments, battles, encampments, folk crafts, and archeological digs enhance your educational experience with a vividness no textbook can match. Everything at Fort Ligonier reveals an intimate link with the past — from hand-forged iron hinges to massive hewn timbers — as you explore this colonial outpost that guarded the vital land route to Pittsburgh and the unconquered West beyond.
Fort Ligonier Days, a very popular three-day festival, commemorates the Battle of Fort Ligonier, a key engagement of the French and Indian War, fought on October 12, 1758. The year 2008 was the 250th anniversary of that event and the founding of Ligonier! On the grounds of the fort you will find a living history encampment showing frontier life, military tactics, drills, cannon firing, ceremonies, Highlanders, redcoats, French troops, frontier men and women, Indians, and music from 1758. A favorite at the fort is the re-enactment of the Battle of Fort Ligonier at 2 and 4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. A large community parade winds its way down Main Street around Ligonier’s picturesque diamond at 11:00 a.m. on Saturday. The parade will include historic units, floats, costumed characters, the shrine units and special guests, including local TV personalities, and high school and college bands.
