Interesting that there are at least three places in the US named Point No Point.
More interesting how the first? was named.

1. Hansville, WA
2. Newark, NJ
3. Stratford, CT

I thought it was an interesting name so I google mapped it ("Point No Point") for the location view (3 locations listed), and checked Wikipedia->how it got named.

Many people will post something (other forums also) with only a city name, no state.
(You provided both before someone climbs all over me.)

There are good chances that there are more than one town in the country with the same name.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Point_No_Point
Excerpt from Wikipedia: "Wilkes gave the point its name because it appears much less of a promontory at close range than it does from a distance."
Very unique and interesting name.

(Oh, there's a Point No Point in Maryland also.)

Relatively confusing, on the other side of the Strait of Juan de Fuca (canadian) is another Point No Point. Perhaps 40 miles away.
