Port Jervis, New York: Tri-States MonumentMarks the meeting point of three states. Probably a big deal in its time, but now it stands forgotten under a freeway overpass.
- E. Main St., Port Jervis, NY
- On the New York side of I-84, exit north onto E. Main St. cross Neversink River and turn left into Laurel Grove Cemetery. Drive and then walk south through the cemetery, all the way under the freeway overpass. The monument will be just beyond, at the water's edge.
- Closes 6 pm.
Visitor Tips and News About Tri-States Monument
I was born in Port Jervis and was recently there for a funeral. Being that this may be the last time in the area I wanted to take my picture on the monument. Drove through the cemetery to the end and there is construction barriers and No Trespassing signs at the end of the road. You cannot get to the monument nor can you see it. This is very disappointing. I will miss it and hopefully this is a temporary issue.[Tabatha Carter, 04/01/2016]
Went to see the monument. There were fences up -- looks like some construction work is going on at the bulkhead. It also looks like a larger monument has been erected near it on the site.[Babs, 03/24/2016]
When you enter the cemetery, take the road all the way to the end. There is a small parking lot directly under the highway. Just beyond the parking lot at the river's edge is the monument.[Brian From Rockland County NY, 06/15/2014]
Easy to find - parking lot in the back of the cemetery. Closes at 6pm.[Tim Brady, 09/12/2013]

The NY-NJ-PA Tri-State marker is in Port Jervis at the confluence of the Delaware and Neversink rivers. The Monument is located under a bridge for I-84 and you can not see it from the highway. To reach by land, you must drive through the Laurel Grove Cemetery. You can also access from boat from PA or NJ.
Whenever I have the time and am passing through this area, I stop at the monument. It's a very cool hidden gem that few people realize is there even though they drive right over it (on I-84.) I originally found it when I decided to check out the old cemetery and the road through leads right to the monument.[Dmoz, 06/07/2009]
