Indian Point (Penn Point)

Historic Districts and Sites

Indian Point, also called Penn Point, was the general location of a longtime boys' summer camp from the Philadelphia area. It was reported to have 500 acres of wood and meadow, including its own dairy and farm. It is not known just when Camp Penn started, but an ad published in 1918 in The American Boy, stated it was then in its 12th year. The old camp was also the home base of Capt. Lorenzo Hagglund from 1934 to 1935, during his discovery and raising of the Philadelphia, a Revolutionary War gunboat now in the Smithsonian Museum.
