We stopped in to tour Friendship Hill expecting the site to be closed. Unexpectedly it was open because of a school tour group. We were able to chat with the site ranger for quite some time, and she gave us quite the history lesson of...More

I have been coming to Friendship Hill since I was young. While the house is small, the scenery, trails, and nature that make up the grounds are a true gem at any time of the year. The staff and volunteers at FH care deeply about...More

Great scenic place to me it reminded me of a miniature Gettysburg with its beautiful green fields and large oak trees lining the road to the main attraction. There is also a overlook area and a house that you can take tours of. This house...More

The person who greeted us-Kitty, I think, was very informative and you could tell she cared about Gallatin and the house. However the house is underwhelming and there's not much to see.

Great National Park stop! Spotlessly clean public restrooms. Park staff are friendly and knowledgeable. Beautiful house and grounds.

We tried going here back in April when visiting Fort Necessity, Braddock’s Grave and Sea rights toll house. We saw a sign for Friendship Hill but couldn’t find it. After farther research it is REALLY far out there and they don’t have many signs. The...More

I am a HUGE supporter of our National Parks, but this site was disappointing. The house belonged to Albert Gallatin, who barely lived there (traveled frequently). The house transferred hands several times, and none of the original furnishings are still in the home. While the...More

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
