LeBoeuf Rich History

May 25, 2018

Mrs. Spicher took the first and second grade classes on an amazing academic enrichment trip to the Fort LeBoeuf Historical Museum & Judson House.  The students both learned and experienced so much today...what a rich history just south of Erie!

 

In 1753, Fort LeBoeuf was built by the French. In December of that year, it was visited by then soldier, George Washington. He was carrying a request from the British for the French to leave the area. The French’s refusal was a key factor in the French and Indian War. This began Waterford’s important role in American history. It was later the homes of both British and American Forts. The accessibility to French Creek made it a key component in the transportation of munitions, salt, people and products to the Allegheny and Ohio Rivers.
