The local historical society has struggled to preserve this building which once was a key component of The Continental Army's supply depot. Most of the land has been turned into malls so we applaud the preservation of this historic building. The guide was a local who deeply cared about the preservation and did a good job of explaining and showcasing... More

My wife and decided to check out the Van Wyck Homestead when visiting our daughter in Fishkill. Our docent was Steve, the President of theFishkill Historical Society. The homestead is interesting enough but Steve's enthusiasm for history, storytelling abilities, and knowledge of Fishkill history was the real gem. He turned us on to all of the amazing history in the... More

The volunteer docents were so friendly, kind and knowledgable, you can tell that this is a labor of love. Such an interesting story of the Van Wyck Home - incredible to be still standing as it was in 1732! You will get to walk on the original floors walked upon by some pretty important historical figures - a must see... More
