We visited for the annual autumn festivities, which are free to the public (donations accepted). There were about 20 tents set up with different vendors (wood crafts, floral crowns, artisans) and food available. They had roast beef sandwiches, a bean soup that was delicious, baked goods, beverages, and candy. There were musicians and historical demonstrations. We wished for more time,... More

Reasonably well kept with some interesting artifacts and beautiful grounds. Worth a stop if you are nearby.

While I have visited from time to time just to tour Albert Gallatin's house and learn more about early American culture, I have also used these grounds to take photos for clients. The tree lined land is beautiful all year. The grounds and architecture are breath taking.

This is a great place to go to check out some local history or hike some beautiful trails. I've walked the trails here many times and never get tired of the scenery. The overlook is nice , the trails are always clean and cleared off.

We've lived in the region for decades and only recently heard about Friendship Hill. I'm so glad that we decided to go check it out. What a beautiful setting!!! I can understand why Albert Gallitan (Thomas Jefferson's contemporary - Secretary of the US Treasury - Ambassador to France) loved to return from his busy political life to soak in the... More

The most important person you never heard of (unless your local) lived here. Albert Gallatin's frontier residence is a good place for a quick stop to learn about an early politician who played important roles in the Louisiana Purchase and the Lewis and Clark Expedition among other things. The house is well maintained and staff seemed knowledgeable. There are 9... More

I've seen this place on maps for years, never really knew what it was. We were in the area at Ft Necessity, so we decided to check it out as well. It is about a 1/2 hr drive from the fort, and traveling Rt40 and rt119 has some beautiful views along the way. The route is well marked and easy... More

My husband and I visited this house after a visit to Ft. Necessity. We thought it was close to the fort but it is really in a very isolated location, about 20 miles away, near the small town of New Geneva, PA founded and laid out by Albert Gallatin, our Swiss founding father, who served the new American government as...

The tree-lined drive to the Park sets the scene for a visit to the stately Gallatin House. The house was not open (we arrived after 7pm) but we walked around the house and over to the gazebo for a view of the river. We had the place to ourselves and it was a very peaceful setting. There are restrooms by... More

I've wanted to go here for years. I would always see the sign for it. The home is situated in a beautiful setting above the Mon River. Hikes are nice-661 acres. The hours on the grounds are sunrise to sunset year round. The times on trip advisor don't reflect this. The house at this time is only open on the... More
