History

Historic sites are an ever-present part of the landscape. Not only can you step back in time, you can choose which time; early Dutch and Quaker days, Colonial or Gilded

Age, or the early 20th century and the World War II era of FDR. Our history museums have great stories to tell, from the daily life in a Dutch

Colonial homestead, to the history of WWI and barnstorming-era airplanes. Be part of the scene at the Little Red School House, a

1914 railroad station, or the FDR

Presidential Library.

FISH AND GAME

Whether you’re looking for trophy-class fish or you just want to experience the tranquility of a secluded trout stream, Dutchess County has it all. The Hudson River is quickly becoming the destination point for anglers from around the globe. Our many stocked streams and lakes have miles of public access available, and hunters and water fowlers can challenge themselves at one of our many multiple use areas. For sporting clays, trap and skeet shooters, Dutchess County is a top

Northeast destination, with seven shooting clubs and preserves open to all.

There are numerous spots for catching trout, striped bass, pickerel, walleye and perch, as well as places for dip-netting, alewives and blueback herring. The beautiful

Hudson itself is an ideal setting for numerous species, including largemouth and smallmouth bass, striped bass, blue crab, brown bullhead, carp, white catfish and

American shad.

Dutchess County is one of the top two counties in the Southern Region of New York

State for deer hunting, with a special archery season for deer spanning about six weeks,

Oct.-Nov. Muzzle-loading & archery hunting continue for 9 days after the regular season.

In designated hunting areas you can also find pheasant, turkey, grouse, woodcock, squirrel, cotton-tail rabbit, raccoon, coyote, and waterfowl. Turkey hunting is open in May as well.

Be sure to contact the New York State

Department of Environmental Conservation in New Paltz for specific fishing and hunting regulations and other relevant information before your planned visit.

Franklin D. Roosevelt

Presidential Library Museum

On June 30, 2016, the Franklin D. Roosevelt Presidential Library and Museum – the first Presidential Library in

America – will observe its 75th Anniversary. President Roosevelt’s belief that the government’s purpose is to serve the people launched an institution that has educated and inspired generations. It truly was an “Act of Faith” as he so eloquently put it. The 75th anniversary of the opening of the first Presidential Library is also a celebration of the Presidential Library System’s value to the nation – and an opportunity to recognize the importance of preserving our history, making that history accessible to the American people, and promoting public service.

100 Years: Let's Celebrate!

The National Park Service turns 100 on August 25, 2016, and everyone can take part in the celebration!

The centennial will kick off a second century of stewardship of America's national parks and engaging communities through recreation, conservation, and historic preservation programs. We invite you to find your park and discover the national parks and programs in your own backyard!
