Ashtabula in Ashtabula County, Ohio — The American Midwest (Great Lakes)
Point Park was originally part of the Western Reserve and Connecticut Land Company purchased by Nehemiah Hubbard. The land went to his heirs and was unsettled until the 1830's.
The land owners maintained the pathway up the hillside and provided benches and gardens for the visitors to enjoy. After the hillside and river frontage was sold to the railroad, the hillside was cut back to construct more railroad yards and docks. The City of Ashtabula purchased the land from Conrail in 1981. Plans to renovate the park by the Point Park Renovation Committee began in 1991 and work on the site began in 1999.
