One Wednesday each month through September

The Constitution Island Association will lead walking tours of Constitution Island on one Wednesday every month through September. Walks are scheduled for July 15, Aug. 12 and Sept. 16, from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. Learn about the island’s Revolutionary War history and the life of the Warner Family on the Island. The tour will view Anna Warner’s historic garden and visit the historic Revolutionary War Redoubts.

Travel to the island is by boat from the United States Military Academy at West Point’s South Dock, where parking is free. Tour guides will accompany guests on the boat, which leaves for the island at 9:30 a.m. The boat will pick up guests to return to West Point at 11:30 a.m. Guests should bring photo ID (driver’s license or passport) and allow time for the West Point entry checkpoint. Comfortable shoes are encouraged — there are some hills and rougher terrain on the hike. Suggested donations are welcome but not required ($10 for adults; $9 for seniors and ages 6–16; $7.50 for school groups; free for kids under 6, cadets, active duty military and DOD personnel). Seating is limited to 38.

Visit the association’s website at constitutionisland.org for more information and to register. Registration closes 24 hours before the event.

The United States Military Academy (USMA) and United States Army Garrison (USAG) West Point are not co-sponsors of this event. Be aware that Constitution Island uses event photos on its website, in newsletters and other publications to promote the organization.
