Historic Hanna's Town

Search Greensburg Pennsylvania

Archaeological investigations at Hanna's Town began in the fall of 1969 to determine the locations of the structures if possible and to recover the artifacts which the early settlers left behind them. To date, more than one million artifacts have been recovered from the site and the locations of approximately twelve areas of occupation determined. The exact site of one of the Hanna's Town forts was located. Thus far, Robert Hanna's house, the one-room jail, and the stockade fort have been reconstructed. Hanna's Town is open for guided tours. Greeting you at the door of the log building that served as home, tavern and courthouse will be a hostess or guide in colonial garb. Guides are well versed on the history and archaeology of the site.
