Friendship Hill National Historic Site, maintained by the National Park Service, was the home of early American politician Albert Gallatin. It overlooks the Monongahela River near Point Marion, about 50 miles south of Pittsburgh. The home itself is made up of seven sections. The earliest of these is the original brick house built in 1789. It was constructed in the Federalist style with a Flemish bond. Other sections were added between 1798 and 1903. The house was designated a National Historic Landmark on January 12, 1965. The national historic site was established on November 10, 1978, and is administered under Fort Necessity National Battlefield.
