High Point, located in the northwestern part of New Jersey in Montague, Sussex County is the highest elevation in the state at 1,803 feet (550 m). It is just southeast of Port Jervis, New York. High Point is the highest peak of the Kittatinny Mountains. At the peak is the High Point Monument War Veterans Memorial, a 220-foot (67 m) tower, built in 1930 by Colonel Anthony Kuyser, who then donated it and the land around it which became the state park. Three different states can be seen from the top of the monument: New Jersey, New York, and Pennsylvania.
