Friends of the Fishkill Supply Depot
Mouseover images to pause slideshow. The Fishkill Supply Depot is located just south of I-84 in Fishkill, NY. The property referred to as 'Crossroads' contains the soldiers' burial ground and other ruins and is one of a few remaining parcels still untouched by development. (1) Aerial view of the 'Crossroads' property shaded in pink. (2) The soldiers' burial ground on September 22, 2013. (3-8) 18th Century ruins of an unknown structure lie hidden in the woods, northeast of the burial ground. (9) Built in the 1970's, the abandoned Dutchess Mall stands silent on grounds that once were the FSD barracks. (10) Looking north from the intersection of Route 9 and Van Wyck Lake road, the Hess gas station is visible just south of Snook road. (11) Supporters place wreaths on the Van Wyck Homestead property during the Wreaths Across America event on December 13, 2014. (12-15) Beams recovered from the 2014 demolition of the 'Bailey House' may have been used to build the depot barracks during the Revolutionary War. Special thanks to Tim Leed and John Paraskeva for helping us acquire & secure these priceless artifacts.
