Renovations are complete!
The story of Constitution Island is the story of the people who once lived here: the Warner Family and the many West Point cadets who found a haven away from home; the American Revolutionary War soldiers; the early Dutch settlers and before them; the Nochpeem Tribe of Native Americans.
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.
Not far from that very spot, the story continues as visitors and volunteers continue to be inspired by these early patriots and keep the house, the gardens and redoubt paths alive with interest.
We look forward to opening the island this season and having you join our history!
Constitution Island is currently preparing our Tours & Events Schedule for the 2022 season.
