Johnson House, Fishkill, NY

Located at the intersection of Main Street and Jackson Street (1020-1022 Main Street) in the Village of Fishkill, the Johnson House was demolished in 2012 and the site rebuilt with a new structure resembling the old one (Rhinebeck Bank).  It is a shame that the old building was demolished; the building was part of the village historic district.

The photos of the old house were taken in 2011 and the new building photos were taken in 2013 and include a photo of the plaque on the building.  The plaque states, “This building is a 2012 rebuild of a farmhouse originally built in the late 1800s that was occupied by Dr. E. Kingsland Johnson and his father.  The Johnson Family contributed to the health and welfare of the community of the Village of Fishkill for more than 50 years.”

Former Texaco Beacon Research Center, Fishkill, NY

Texaco operated the Beacon Research Center in the Glenham hamlet, Fishkill, NY from 1931 to 2003. The center was a laboratory complex engaged in research, development, and technical services related to petroleum products and energy.  The site has a lot of environmental contamination, and so the site needs to be remediated.  Remediation included building removal, which apparently occurred between 2011 and 2012 and consisted of 64 buildings and structures.

These photos were taken of a small portion of the former center, along Old Glenham Road, in June 2015.

Jackson House, Fishkill, NY

The Jackson House was located at the southwest quadrant of the intersection of Main Street and Jackson Street in Fishkill, NY. The house was a nineteenth century home of Dutchess County Judge Joseph I. Jackson and part of the Village of Fishkill National Register Historic District. For a time the building served as an office for Mid-Hudson Medical Group (I remember going to it as a child!).

A rear addition to the building was demolished some time between 2011 and 2013, and then the rest of the historic structure was demolished in December 2013. These pictures depict the house in March 2011, March 2013, and then its demolition.
