Historic PA River Confluence!
Point State Park is located at the confluence of the Allegheny, Ohio, and Monongahela Rivers and is rich with American history. Identified by General George Washington as an optimal site for a fort, this area of land at the triangulation of the rivers was an integral defense point during the French and Indian war. Visit the Fort Pitt Museum to learn about the French and Indian war and history of the Pittsburgh area before heading over to the Fort Pitt Blockhouse, Western PA's oldest architectural landmark. The park has many walkways, monuments and plaques so visitors can learn the historic importance of this river confluence. The park is also full of wildlife and thousands of native plants, making it a great place to sit in peace and tranquility for a break from the bustling city nearby.
