This historic house in Wappingers Falls, New York was built by two of the areas first European settlers in 1741. The house and property were bought by a loyalist tea merchant from New York City named Peter Mesier in 1776. Mesier opened a store in the homestead and charged such exorbitant prices that in May of 1777, locals broke in and demanded tea before spending the next three days beating Mesier, his wife, and servants, destroying his property, and raiding their supplies.

Today, the house stands in the middle of a nice park where you can come and get a glimpse at this site where so much Wappingers Falls history has happened.
