Where

This historic house and museum in Fishkill, New York was built in 1732 by Cornelius Van Wyck, one of Dutchess County’s early Dutch settlers.

During the Revolutionary War, this house served as headquarters for the Fishkill Supply Depot, a supply center for the Continental Army. Famous individuals like George Washington, the Marquis de Lafayette, Alexander Hamilton, and John Jay passed through this house during that time.

In 1962, the homestead was nearly demolished to make way for the neighboring interstate 84, but the Fishkill Historical Society was formed and successfully saved this historic site.
