We had not visited the Braddock Grave when we visited the area several years ago. So we were happy we had a chance to spend 30 minutes at the grave this trip east. We read information about the battle and Braddock's mortal wound before we...More

Nice parking lot to view monument and information. Suggest going to Ft. Necessity National Park first to understand the timeline. It is about 1/4 mile away to the east on Rt 40.

I liked it, but i like history. Read about the French and Indian War first and then you can appreciate it more. Braddocks Inn next door has amazing food :)
