Friendship Hill NHS is well off the beaten path in the southwestern corner of Pennsylvania, but is well worth a visit for lovers of history and nature alike. The centerpiece of the park is the former home of Albert Gallatin, an often forgotten early contributor...More

The grounds are open every day, sunrise to sunset. I saw the landscape, the exterior of the house, and the location. There are lots of trails to walk. The place is high up on a hill, so it can be difficult to walk.

One of the nicest NP in the area. It is beautiful at all seasons. Great history and the grounds are quiet.

Attended a group walk here. Very good staff. Wonderful activities for the kids. Good trails to walk. Nice nature walk. Can't wait to return in the fall and see the beautiful autumn colors.

The park ranger was very informative! I hadn't know much about this time period & Mr Gallidin. Quite the interesting life & house! Glad I went!

Went here with my wife, 3 young children, and my parents. The location itself is pretty far off the beaten path, but that adds to the appeal. The grounds leading into Gallatin's Friendship Hill homestead are lined with trees and rolling green spaces. Closer to...More
