West Point is one of the oldest cities in Kentucky dating back to 1796. Our historic district includes buildings and homes that pre-date the civil war and have been associated with numerous historic figures and a few ghosts! Guided tours are available beginning in our museum that is replete with the documents and artifacts from days gone by.
Located at the convergence of the Ohio and Salt rivers West Point offers the opportunity to enjoy all types of boating and fishing. Unlike many river communities with heavy development along the river, our banks contain miles of scenic woodlands, farms, and private homes filled with the natural beauty of an unspoiled nature preserve. All of this to be enjoyed from the river itself or be viewed from our Veterans Park located on the river in the historic district.
You’ll want to include a trip to Tioga Falls, and Bridges to the past as well as the civil war era Fort Duffield. Located at one of the highest points in the region you will experience panoramic views of the area in all seasons. For the adventurous visitor Fort Duffield offers some of the largest drop mountain bike trails in the region and miles of quite hiking trails for those less daring. We look forward to welcoming you to our community!
