Ft. Edwards – French and Indian War

Ft. Edwards – French and Indian War

Fort Edwards was one of many forts guarding the Virginia frontier during the French and Indian War. In the late 1740’s, this river valley was one of several areas surveyed for Lord Fairfax by the young George Washington. In 1756, Col. Washington’s Virginia Regiment led a raid from the small fort which stumbled into an ambush of over 100 French and Indian raiders in the largest and most costly encounter between Virginia and French-Indian forces. Today, the Fort Edwards Foundation preserves this historic site and operates a small Visitor Center with a museum, maps, and books. Located in Capon Bridge just 20 miles west of Winchester.

At one time, two infantry regiments of 2,000 men guarded this extensive network of trenches to control key roadways and enable defense of the B&O Railroad line. Trail information provides an overview of the fort and its history. The trail loop takes approximately 45 minutes to one hour. The fort is located 2.6 miles west of Romney, on Route 50, starting at light in the center of Romney.
