Current use/information: State Historic Site.
Statement of Significance (as of designation - January 20, 1961):
On July 15, 1779, the Patriot victory at Stony Point, under Gen. "Mad Anthony" Wayne, insured General Washington's control of the Hudson River and West Point.
Property adjacent to the site may be developed in the near future. This would negatively impact the viewshed and cause a loss of integrity. The land, which has always been in private ownership, was part of the battlefield.
Recommendation/Change since last report:
A boundary study would determine the percentage of land owned by the Stony Point Battlefield State Historic Site.
