Stony Point State Park and Stony Point Battlefield: 
Stony Point, NY

I have very fond memories of visiting Stony Point Battlefield as a child. The highlight of our visit was the soldier dressed in  the uniform of George Washington’s army and firing a rifle.

I recently decided to take my family on a visit to the park. The older kids were interested in the history of Stony Point Battlefield. They enjoyed the exhibits in the museum (no photos allowed inside) explaining the whole revolutionary war and the part Stony Point played in it.

After visiting the museum we took a walk over to the lighthouse, the oldest lighthouse on the Hudson River (built in 1826) We enjoyed the scenic walk and the beautiful views of the Hudson River framing the lighthouse. The park is set above the Hudson River and offers magnificent views all around.

I was not aware that the canon firing and reenactments of the 18th century military life that takes place outside the museum is only on display on weekends. During our Friday visit we got to see the closed tents outside set up for the weekend demonstrations.

I hope to go back one Sunday to see the reenactments and firing of the canon (I was told it is at 3 pm on Sundays).
