Fort Crawford

    Fort Crawford was located on the Allegheny River at what is now the Parnassus section of New Kensington, PA.  It was used primarily as a supply fort.

    A four ton marker with a bronze plaque was put on the site by the Massy Harbison Chapter, NSDAR, and dedicated on May 13, 1942, during the 150th anniversary of the Logan's Ferry Presbyterian Church on whose property it stands.  It was re-dedicated on July 30, 1991, during New Kensington's centennial celebration.

    The chapter was granted an easement in 1999 so that the monument would never be moved or destroyed should the property on which it stands be sold.
