Welcome to the Dutchess County, New York!

Prior to Anglo-Dutch settlement, the area that comprises Dutchess County was mainly the Wappinger peoples. They had their council-fire and gatherings in Fishkill Hook and along the Danskammer.

1 Nov 1683 Dutchess County was created as one of the original 12 counties. It included area that is now Putname County and some of Columbia County.

Until 1713 Dutchess County was administered by Ulster County.

Most of the settlers in Dutchess County from 1683 until 1715 were mainly Dutch who moved in from Ulster and Albany Counties.

After 1715 until around 1730 most of the new settlers were German. From 1730 until 1775 people from the New England states made up most of the new settlers.
