TRI-STATES MONUMENT

View off of the Tri-State Monument

One of the city’s most famous landmarks is the Tri-States Rock where a person can stand on three states at one time. The rock is located just under the Interstate Route 84 bridge. This is also the site where a 100-year boundary dispute between the colonies of East and West Jersey and New York was finally resolved in 1769. At this location, Philadelphia astronomer David Rittenhouse took the measurements that were the basis for the western termination point of the land boundary between the two colonies.

On the New York side of I-84, exit north onto E. Main St. cross Neversink River and turn left into Laurel Grove Cemetery. Follow the road to the furthest point beneath the overpass.

VETERANS MEMORIAL PARK AT ORANGE SQUARE

The square was designed with a series of paths emanating from a central circle where a fountain was located, a pattern retained in the current design. An impressive, multi-tiered fountain, located in the center of the park, was later moved to a location near Sussex Street. At the center of Orange Square today is a monument dedicated on July 5, 1886, in the presence of some 10,000 people to the veterans of the Civil War.
