The story of Constitution Island is the story of the people who once lived there: the Nochpeem Tribe of Native Americans, early Dutch settlers, American Revolutionary War soldiers, the Warner Family, and the many West Point cadets who found a haven away from home.
For forty years, during the 19th century, Anna and Susan Warner taught bible classes to cadets who rowed across the river, landing, coincidentally, at the same place where the Great Chain was anchored in 1778, protecting the Hudson River and our Independence.
Constitution Island is not hosting tours for the remainder of the year, but we are currently preparing our Tours & Events Schedule for the 2022 season!
New Life on Constitution Island
Two ‘Sun Valley’ Red Maples and a dozen heirloom perennial flowers were planted on Constitution Island on the last day of the gardening season, October 27th. With the help of the West Point Department of Works, the volunteer gardeners of the Constitution Island Association put their hands and hearts to work to maintain the historical Anna B. Warner gardens and
give the island new life for coming generations.
Return to the Island!
After staying in storage for 12 years while the Warner House was being restored, the belongings of the Warner family have finally returned to Constitution Island! We are looking forward to unwrapping history as we prepare the Warner House for the 2022 season!
Constitution Island Association celebrated the restoration of the Warner House with a Ribbon Cutting Ceremony ! Accompanied by West point Garrison Commander Col. Evangeline G. Rosel, as well as violinist Daisy Jopling, this day will always be an historic moment in Constitution Island Association history.
