Discover Fort Halifax
Fort Halifax was built in 1756 with the purpose of providing safe shelter for pack trains passing from Fort Hunter (Harrisburg) to Fort Augusta (Sunbury.) Due to the French and Indian War, settlers in the area regularly encountered deadly conflicts with Native Americans. Fort Halifax was built as a solution to the problem.
