Bringing back the Fort
Built in 1933, Lakeside Hall served as the officers club for Historic Fort Ritchie. With a large deck overlooking Lake Royer, a floor to ceiling stone fireplace, and high ceilings with rustic beams, it makes a perfect event space for any special occasion.
95 years after Camp Ritchie started its training in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Maryland, 80 years after the arrival of the Ritchie Boys, and 24 years after the closure of Fort Ritchie, a museum dedicated to the these veterans is opening to honor their legacy.

Harshman Automotive brings a strong manufacturing presence to Fort Ritchie. Their work creating automotive parts from aluminum are top quality and they continue to expand their reach in selling parts on a national and international scale.
