Nestled between the Neversink and Delaware Rivers and the Appalachian Plateau and Shawangunk Mountains is the city of Port Jervis. Located in Orange County, New York, Port Jervis is on the border between both Pennsylvania and New Jersey. Due to its location, the city has been a center of transportation for centuries.
Native Americans originally used this site as a stopping point on the Delaware River. Eventually, European settlers came to the area and founded the village of Mahackmeck. This village would go on to be a stop on both the D&H canal and the Erie Railroad. The name Port Jervis was adopted by the village in order to honor John Bloomfield Jervis. He is one of the men who were responsible for putting the village on the map. During this time the village was part of the larger town of Deerpark until it split off and became its own city in 1907. The city has continued to grow since then. Port Jervis is now home to a growing industry and a large number of recreational activities.
