About Us

Constitution Island is located on the east side of the Hudson River directly opposite the United States Military Academy at West Point, and is connected to the east shore by Constitution Marsh.

Due to this strategic location, the Island has experienced a history that dates back thousands of years!

During the Revolutionary War,  the Continental Army used the Island to prevent the British from traveling up the Hudson River solidifying the Island's role in creating this country.

In 1609, a sailor aboard Henry Hudson's ship, the Half Moon, describes the Island as a staging ground for their travels up the River.

Finally, archaeological evidence shows that 6,000 years ago Native Americans used the Island for hunting, fishing, and travel along the River.

The mission of Constitution Island Association is to partner with the United States Military Academy at West Point to provide visitors and the West Point community with a rewarding educational and recreational experience based on both the legacy of the Warner Sisters and the Island's history, ecology, and unique location on the Hudson River.
