- Hunter Research Inc. Report - A HISTORICAL AND ARCHEOLOGICAL SYNTHESIS OF THE FISHKILL SUPPLY DEPOT- March 2016- "This report presents a synthesis of past historical and archeological research relating to the Fishkill Supply Depot, a key facility in the Hudson Highlands that supported the operations of the Continental Army and New York State militia throughout the Revolutionary War. This project was undertaken by Hunter Research, Inc. under contract to the Friends of the Fishkill Supply Depot and was funded by a grant from the National Park Service, American Battlefield Protection Program."
The Fishkill Historical Society's Position on the Proposed Development of the site:
“Whereas the Fishkill Historical Society is in favor of Historical Preservation, be it resolved that the position of the Fishkill Historical Society shall be that as long as Federal, New York State and local Dutchess County and Town of Fishkill archeological research and building requirements are adhered to by the owner of the proposed “Continental Commons” property, he has the right to develop this area.
The Fishkill Historical Society officially objects to any development of the 100 foot easement that is currently in place between Snook Road and the gas station buildings that are located at the southeast corner of the intersection of Route 9 and Snook Road (a.k.a. 480 US Route 9, Fishkill, New York)."
