28 Main Street across from Tu-Endie-Wei State Park

Visit the River Museum in Point Pleasant for an exhibit of the Silver Bridge Disaster which includes a video, a model and artifacts from the original Silver Bridge. Also, you can take a trip in a working model of an old steamboat pilot house, view a display about the Marietta Manufacturing Company which built stern wheelers, tow boats and barges. They also built ocean going vessels such as mine planters and new tenders for World War II. The last ocean going vessel was launched from there in 1961. You can also do research on river history and lore in their second floor library.
