Point Marion is a borough in Fayette County, Pennsylvania, United States. The population was 1,333 at the 2000 census. It is served by the Albert Gallatin Area School District.HistoryPoint Marion is located at the confluence of the Monongahela and Cheat Rivers. Approximately three miles north of Point Marion is Friendship Hill National Historic Site, home of early American politician Albert Gallatin. Point Marion was settled in the mid-18th century and named in 1842 for its geographic location and Revolutionary War hero Francis Marion, the "Swamp Fox", a South Carolinian who never saw the town.Houze Glass Co., located in the borough, was the primary employer. The company was founded by Leon Houze, a Belgian immigrant, in 1902 as a glassware manufacturer, but later branched into silkscreen printing and decorating. The company closed in 2004 and the plant later auctioned off.The Albert Gallatin Memorial Bridge was listed on the National Register of Historic Places as the Marion Bridge in 1988. It was demolished November 16, 2009, and replaced with a new bridge.In November 2013, the town disbanded its two-man police department. The department's insurer dropped coverage after settling a case involving Officer Kevin Lukart. Lukart arrested a man who was recording the policeman. This resulted in a lawsuit and then the end of the policy. Lukart had been previously fired by the police in Apollo, Pennsylvania after he was charged with exposing himself to a minor and by police in Braddock, Pennsylvania when he was filmed attacking a handcuffed man.
