Blennerhassett Island Historical State Park
What is there to do?
Blennerhassett Island Historical State Park and the Friends of Blennerhassett, its volunteer group, are pleased that you will visit our park. The Island is open May 1 through October of each year. While visiting our park you should allow at least three hours for a complete tour. This includes the boat trip to and from the island. Blennerhassett Museum should be the first stop of your tour. It is the perfect orientation for all that you will see throughout the day. Your museum visit begins with viewing the video that briefly explains the lives of Harman and Margaret Blennerhassett. You will then be free to tour the three floors of intriguing archaeological and historical exhibits. After the museum, you can then walk a couple of blocks down Second Street to Point Park. This is the departure site for the 20-minute sternwheeler ride to the Island. Please see the boat schedule for departure times.
