Long Description:
The park is named for a landmark public sculpture in bronze by James A. West, "Point of View". The piece depicts George Washington and the Seneca leader Guyasuta, with their weapons down, in a face-to-face meeting in October 1770, when the two men met while Washington was in the area examining land for future settlement along the Ohio River.

Once allies, then veterans on opposing sides in the French & Indian War, the two met 17 years later down the Ohio River and sat overnight at council fire to revisit their past and debate the future of this highly prized region. Though they held very different ideas about the fate of this area, they parted on friendly terms.
