Create an itinerary including Tu-Endie-Wei State Park
Tu-Endie-Wei State Park is located at the confluence of the Kanawha River and the Ohio River in downtown Point Pleasant, West Virginia. The park commemorates the Battle of Point Pleasant, fought between the settler militia of Virginia and the forces of Shawnee Chief Cornstalk on October 10, 1774. The militia victory by the settlers weakened the alliance between native forces and the British and freed up settlers from western Virginia to cross the Allegheny Mountains and join in the American Revolutionary War.

The name "Tu-Endie-Wei" refers to the Wyandot Indian phrase meaning "the point between two waters" in English.
The Battle of Point Pleasant has been recognized as the first battle of the American Revolutionary War by the National Society of Daughters of the American Revolution. Female descendants of battle veterans are allowed to join the D.A.R. The historical debate about the first battle claim may not yet be resolved.
The 1796 Mansion House is historic house museum originally used as a tavern. The Colonel Charles Lewis Chapter, N.S. Daughters of the American Revolution operates the Mansion House Museum on a seasonal basis.

  • This park is small but free. There’s a lot of information about the local history, battles and people who fought in it. There also also great views of the Ohio River and places to sit.

  • This was a small "snapshot" of history. There was a tavern/trading post/residence 225 years old on its original location on the "point" where the Kanawha and Ohio Rivers meet. (Memorabilia abounds...

  • We walked down the river front to see the statues and the murals to the state park. It was about 2 blocks on a gravel path. Bathrooms are on the way to get to the statue and cabin. The cabin (free entrance fee) was very interesting and chocked full of artifacts. Basement, main level and 2 more floors. Pick up a sticker or hoodie.
  • Very cool. The smallest state park in WV. Beautiful setting where the Kanawha and Ohio rivers come together. There is a small picnic area and a very small museum. There is an 84' obelisk commemorating the Battle of Point Pleasant in 1774.
