Commemorate the Fourth of July with the Fort Pitt Museum in Point State Park!

At 11 a.m., visitors can gather in the Fort Pitt Block House yard to help lower a British ensign and raise a 36-foot, 13-star American flag with help from museum staff and local scouts. This American flag is one of several early patterns that may have flown over Fort Pitt during the American Revolution.

The ceremony will conclude with the singing of the National Anthem and other patriotic tunes by special guests from the Yinzer Singers.

The Fort Pitt Museum would like to thank the National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution, Pittsburgh Chapter for the use of the Fort Pitt Block House grounds and for its care, promotion, and historic interpretation of Block House history for 125 years of its 255-year history.

This outdoor ceremony is free and open to the public.

The Fort Pitt Museum holds outdoor Living History events on Saturdays in the summer. For a complete listing of programs, visit the Living History section of the Fort Pitt Museum’s website.
