The Fishkill Supply Depot was designated as a national historic site in 1973 due to its archaeological value related to the Revolutionary War, the “last remaining vestiges of a military supply base that sustained the Continental Army” according to the Friends of the Fishkill Supply Depot. "In 2009 it was formally confirmed by archeological study that hundreds of America’s first veterans, casualties of the War of Independence, are buried here in unmarked graves." In April, the town voted to advance the commercial development plan toward full approval. More info: http://www.fishkillsupplydepot.org/ + [ Add to Calendar ]
