Explore Blennerhassett Island Historical State Park

The island is open May 1 through October of each year. Blennerhassett Museum should be the first stop of your tour. It orientates you for all that you will see on Blennershassett Island. View the video, which briefly explains the lives of Harman and Margaret Blennerhassett. You will then be free to tour the three floors of intriguing archaeological and historical exhibits.

West Virginia: Wild and WonderfulAfter the museum, you can then walk a couple of blocks down Second Street to Point Park. This is the departure site for the 20-minute sternwheeler ride to the Island. Please see boat schedule for departure times.

While on the island, visitors can enjoy picnicking, horse-drawn wagon rides, shopping at Friends of Blennerhassett Gift Shop, the refreshment stand, bike rentals, nature walks, and, of course, touring the beautiful Blennerhassett Mansion. The island ticket booth sells tickets for the mansion and wagon ride tours. It also serves as our first aid station. Blennerhassett's tranquility enthralls many of our visitors as they walk the wagon trail-road encircling the upper end of the island. Rich plant life, huge trees, and varied wildlife is a rare treat.

A variety of options are available for touring Blennerhassett Island. Costumed volunteers conduct tours through the reconstructed mansion.

Self-guided walking tours and horse drawn wagon rides are also available.

Special events are highlighted throughout the season.
