Details

Event Type Historic Site Tour Description The Van Wyck Homestead was built in 1732, and enlarged to its present size in 1757. It is one of the oldest homes in Dutchess County. During the American Revolution the home was used as an Officers' Headquarters for the Fishkill Supply Depot soldiers' encampment (Oct. 1776 - Oct. 1783). Dozens of notable Revolutionary War heroes visited the Homestead - including George Washington, Alexander Hamilton, John Jay, and Marquis de Lafayette to name a few.
