OUR STORY

The Fishkill Supply Depot Historic Site is a Veterans based effort, joined by Historians and Patriotic Citizens of the Hudson Valley, to create a Historic Park for New York’s Revolutionary War-era Fishkill Supply Depot and its Military Cemetery.

A BIT OF BACKGROUND

Behind the Scenes

The Fishkill Supply Depot Historic Site was listed on the National Register of Historic Places by the U.S. Department of the Interior on 21 January, 1974 at the original site first established by General George Washington in 1776 as the principle supply depot for the Continental Army.

The Fishkill Supply Depot Historic Site was one of the largest, continuously operated military bases of the American Revolution. As a Veterans led organization we are committed to the establishment of a National Military park at the original site, the protection and preservation of the original site, and Federal protection for the military cemetery on site where hundreds of Americas First Veterans lay buried in unmarked graves.
