Point of Rocks Marker, S-23

Point of Rocks is located two miles south on the Appomattox River. In 1608, Captain John Smith wrote about this high rock cliff which projected out to the channel of the river.

Rock from the point was used to build the wall of the City Point National Cemetery shortly after the Civil War.
