The area was originally settled by the Lenape Indians who fished in the Delaware River. Its proximity to the river led to the development of grist mills. Grain for the soldiers during the Revolutionary War was ground here. In later years, Point Pleasant was a resting spot for canalmen along the Delaware Division of the Pennsylvania Canal, and a waystation for the Doylestown-Frenchtown-NewYork stage.
