The Fishkill Supply Depot and Encampment was of tremendous importance during the American Revolutionary War. It stretched from the banks of the Hudson River. This area included present day Beacon, Glenham, Fishkill, Wappingers Falls, Wiccopee, Snow Valley and East Fishkill.

The Fishkill Supply Depot was dismantled after the Revolutionary War. Over time, the Depot area filled in. The Continental Commons property, a small part of the original Fishkill Supply Depot is located at the corner of Snook Road and NYS Rt. 9, in between the Speedway gas station and Maya Cafe, across from the Dutchess Mall. After the war the Continental Commons parcel was farmed and then residential homes were built on it. The 10.47 acre parcel has been extensively studied and disturbed over 200 years, and its archeological information has in all probability been exhausted. 

Unfortunately, the Friends of the Fishkill Supply Depot have been trying to stop Continental Commons with false and purposefully misleading historical references and distorted archaeological reports. These anti-develop extremists stand to benefit financially and personally if the Town of Fishkill spends millions of taxpayer dollars to take the private property by eminent domain.

Since the 1968 more than a dozen archeological studies have been completed on the property. Read complete studies on the Continental Commons property.
