our annual seminar...

The Braddock Road Preservation Association was formed in 1989 as the Jumonville Preservation Association. Its first meeting was attended by a few interested history buffs, and has grown to be one of the premier French & Indian War seminars in the country since then. The annual French and Indian War seminar at Jumonville is held the first Friday and Saturday of November. It features:

  • Guest speakers, including some of the top historians and museum directors in the field.
  • Slide shows, music presentations, and in 2000 the premiere of a major documentary film.
  • Exhibits of period artifacts.
  • Displays by antiquarian book and rare print dealers.
  • Participation by the National Park Service.
