Port Jervis, New York: Tri-States Monument

Marks the meeting point of three states. Probably a big deal in its time, but now it stands forgotten under a freeway overpass.

Laurel Grove Cemetery

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.
Cemetery gates open daily 6-6 Local health policies may affect hours and access.

It was clear sailing -- I drove right through the cemetery, and at the end there was a parking lot with a lookout area. You get out of the car, walk down, and there it is: Tri-State three states PA-NJ-NY. Question is what came first -- the marker or the cemetery ?

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.

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.

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.
