The history and prominence of West Point is legendary and its role in the formation of the United States precedes the American Revolution. West Point's tactical position and geographic importance were pivotal to the Patriot's cause and proved to be the hub around which the American Revolution turned. It was never lost during the Revolution and proved its importance in binding the Northern Colonies of New England to the Mid-Atlantic and Southern Colonies, maintaining open trade routes allowing raw goods and manufactured goods to continue to flow.

West Point Military Academy, located at West Point, is the oldest military academy in America. Visitors are restricted and are asked to go to the Visitor Information Center upon arrival. The Center is open daily from 9:00 to 4:45 and is located a few hundred yards south of the main gate. Guided coach tours of West Point are available for a small fee.

The West Point Museum at Pershing Center is open seven days a week, from 10:30 to 4:15. Closed on Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years Day. No admission, donations are accepted.

The lovely old house on Constitution Island was the home of the Warner family from 1836 to 1915. Susan and Anna Warner were well known writers in the 19th century. Susan wrote "The Wide, Wide World" in 1850 which became a best seller of its day. Anna is best known for writing the words to the hymn "Jesus Loves Me". The sisters taught Bible classes to West Point cadets for forty years.

The oldest part of the Warner House includes a thick stone wall existing from Revolutionary War days. The Victorian wing of eight rooms was built by Henry Warner in 1836 when he moved his family from New York City to the island. The house is furnished with original Warner family possessions. The Warner House is a living museum and is kept as nearly as possible as it was when Miss Anna Warner lived there until her death in 1915.

Guided tour of Revolutionary War fortifications and seventeen room Warner House. Reservations required.
