782-788 Main Street, Poughkeepsie, NY

This commercial property dates to approximately 1880 according to the Town of Poughkeepsie Reconnaissance-Level Historic Resource Survey (September 2011).  A one-story section of the building collapsed and was demolished, revealing an old painted sign indicating the store held “Staple and Fancy Groceries.”  The line above it is unfortunately not legible.

Property cards for the property are difficult to interpret due to multiple buildings being on one lot.  The cards appear to indicate the mansard roof was installed in 1982 (it is unknown if it was a replacement roof or a new roof style). The cards also indicate Breyer Ice Cream was present in 1955, a good store in 1981, and a bakery at an unknown time.
