Point Roberts is a land exclave of the United States on the southernmost tip of the Tsawwassen Peninsula, south of Vancouver in British Columbia. The area, which had a population of 1,314 at the 2010 census, is reached by land by traveling 25 mi (40 km) through Canada. It is a census-designated place (CDP) in Whatcom County, Washington with a post office, and ZIP code of 98281. Direct sea and air connections with the U.S. are available across Boundary Bay. Point Roberts was created when the United Kingdom and the United States settled the Pacific Northwest American-Canadian border dispute in the mid-19th century with the Oregon Treaty. Both parties agreed the 49th parallel would delineate both countries' territories, but they overlooked the small area that incorporates Point Roberts. Questions about ceding the territory to the United Kingdom and later to Canada have been raised since its creation but its status has remained unchanged.
