Pricketts Fort State Park

Search Fairmont West Virginia

Located on the site of an early frontier stronghold, this fort has been reconstructed to resemble its original 1774 counterpart. Within the compound are 16 cabins, a meeting hall and a storehouse which features authentic demonstrations of pioneer crafts. Also on site is the restored home of Job Prickett (c. 1860). In addition, the park offers picnicking, an amphitheater for the performing arts and a boat-launching ramp affording access to the Monongahela River.
