About this website

The purpose of this website is to offer a comprehensive look into Rock Point Park in Ellwood City, Pa… it’s origins, it’s history, and it’s current state. It is an open repository of information we have collected about the park. Visitors can read about the history of the park, and view present-day photographs, old Glass Box Souvenirpostcards, park memorabilia, documents, maps, etc.

Who are we? We are responsible and respectful citizens, just like you. We are not affiliated with any government agencies, public or private organizations, or commercial businesses. We are not professional historians, archaeologists, or published authors. We are private individuals who are passionate about local history, willing to put forth the effort to explore and research this remarkable story, and make our findings available to the public. We work closely with the Wild Waterways Conservancy and the Ellwood City Historical Society, as well as many prominent local historians to present, as clearly as possible, the amazing story of Rock Point Park. We have no interest in profiting from this effort. This website is the result of our love of history, and the information presented is intended for the education and enjoyment of our readers.
