Since 2012, we have worked to promote the history of PO Box 1142, and to improve interpretive and recreational resources at Fort Hunt Park.


Our Mission

The Friends of Fort Hunt Park, Inc. (FFHPI) is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to preserving and enhancing the park’s historic, natural and recreational resources and interpreting its rich history. FFHPI and the George Washington Memorial Parkway signed a formal agreement making FFHPI the official friends’ group for Fort Hunt Park.
