Palisade at Pricketts Fort

A log fort commissioned in 1774 by Captain Jacob Prickett has been reconstructed at Pricketts Fort State Park, a historical park that recounts the age of native warfare in early West Virginia (WV). Once a refuge for as many as 80 area families, the fort is representative of many that provided shelter during the late 1700s when natives and Europeans battled for control of the region. The fort, an adjacent historical museum, and other historical landmarks at the park are operated privately without profit for a fee and all are open April through October. The remainder of the park and its trails and picnic areas are open year-round. The Monongahela River courses along the western end of the park.

Directions: Prickett’s Fort State Park is located near Fairmont, WV, in eastern Marion County, in the Monongehela Valley Region in northern West Virginia.
