Fort Roberdeau will host “Meet the border ranger” from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday 2 October.

Admission is $ 6 for adults, $ 5 for seniors, and $ 3 for children 11 and under.

Jared Frederick portrays a border guard at Fort Roberdeau. During the War of Independence, rangers stationed at Fort Roberdeau patrolled the border along the Allegheny Front, looking for enemy raids by the British Rangers and their Native American allies.

Frederick hails from Blair County and has always been passionate about history. A history graduate from Penn State and West Virginia Universities, he has worked as a ranger for the National Park Service, volunteered with various local historical organizations, and runs living history programs throughout Pennsylvania. He is also the author of eight books.
