Washington’s Landing, formerly known as “Herr’s Island,” has a deep and profound history. George Washington reputedly slept on the island after his raft capsized in the Allegheny River while on a diplomatic mission to the the French at Fort Le Boeuf near Lake Erie during the French and Indian War. This story led to the renaming of the island on October 24, 1987.
Today the island is home to Washington’s Landing Marina with it’s 165 wet slips and over 150 dry stack valet slips available. This gorgeous location is now a destination for families and friends to relax, laugh, and enjoy time well spent on the water.
