Journey on a walking tour of beautiful and historic Constitution Island.

 

Each Summer, the Constitution Island Association offers walking tours of it's beautiful grounds, impressive gardens and fortifications, and the formidable Warner House.  Learn about the Island's Revolutionary War history and the life of the Warner Family on the Island.  View Anna Warner's historic garden and visit the historic Revolutionary War Redoubts with experienced tour guides who understand the Island's history and signifcance.  Wear comfortable shoes - there are some hills and rough terrain!

 

Travel to the island is by boat from the United States Military Academy at West Point's South Dock.  Please bring Photo ID and allow time for the West Point entry checkpoint.

 

At West Point, follow signs to the visitors center and "West Point - South Gate".  Proceed through the security checkpoint.  Just beyond the gate, pass the Thayer Hotel on the right and then turn right onto "Williams Road".  At the bottom of the hill is the Hudson River and South Dock.  Free parking at West Point's South Dock parking lot. 

 

Our Tour Guides will meet you at South Dock and join you on the boat which leaves for the Island at 9:30.  The boat will pick everyone up to return to West Point at 11:30. 

 

*Please note that the Warner House is closed and will not be part of the tour.  We are hopeful that funds will be secured this year, to allow for the restoration project to get underway in 2017.

Tours are free but donations are greatly appreciated!
