A brief visit to the small walking park to show off the river and bridge will give you the perfect opportunity to tell the history of Point Pleasant and the bridge collapse and even the mothman story if you are so inclined. Definitely a must-stop on any tour of the area.

I read about "Chief Cornstalk's Vengeful Bones" on Road Side America and we decided to stop by when we were in Point Pleasant. It's a very pretty, well-maintained cemetery, free to the public, with a beautiful view of the Silver Memorial Bridge.

No, there was no Paul Revere here to stir the imagination, but when Lord Dunmore rounded up a sizeable force of Shawnee under war chief Cornstalk, he was met by a different army of embattled farmers, who gave him what for. This engagement had far reaching effects felt even until the War of 1812. There was a very young Shawnee lad here with his father who would come to be known as Tecumseh. His inability as a chief in his own right to form an alliance of native Americans and reclaim traditional territory was largely doomed by reluctance born here. The battle monument, the statues and markers tell a powerful story. The museum itself is housed in "the mansion" so called because it is a rare two story log cabin. The rangers are extremely knowledgable and helpful, and the sight of two large rivers merging is a rare opportunity. We are so glad we visited.

I have visited Tu-Endie-Wei State Park in Point Pleasant, WV several times, and each visit has been worth the time spent. The location, at the confluence of the Kanawha and Ohio Rivers, is nice for picnics or just sitting in the swing at the edge of the park and watching the Ohio River traffic. There are several statues on the grounds commemorating Revolutionary War figures, and the Mansion House is a museum unto itself, having been a tavern in olden days. The park ranger will gladly answer any questions you may have about the park or other places in the area. The location is at the end of Main Street, and there is ample parking at the floodwall surrounding the park.

This is a very nice, small park located near the River Museum ($5), Mothman Museum ($3), and Harris Steakhouse (they don't take credit cards). There are murals along the flood walls. It's very pretty and well-kept. There are public restrooms here. You get to see where two rivers intersect. There are numerous statues and monuments along the flood walls. You will enjoy it and hopefully you can visit the museums while you are here.
