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.

  • An unexpected find on our Mothman trip! This park is beautiful and right on the River. A lot of historical monuments to see, along with beautiful painted murals.  more »
  • The park is very small, but well worth the visit. There is an old house that you can visit for free. In fact, the whole park is free!  more »

  • I didn’t do my homework before arriving here so I wasn’t sure what to expect. We got here from Houston and I have to say that this is a beautiful little park! We had a nice visit, walked over to the Mothman Museum, got some ice cream in a furniture store, went to a river festival where a crazy rainstorm popped up and drenched us. Coming from Houston where it’s about 103 degrees, I enjoyed the cold rain.
  • This is a beautiful park, nice atmosphere, great place to watch the river flow by. The only downside to this place is, people don't clean up after their dog's. They let them use the park for a bathroom, and make no effort to clean up after them. There was a lady that lived across the street from the park, and even though she had a large backyard, she still took her dog to poop in the park. 😡
