According to a plaque on the gate of the property, Upper Landing has been used for over 200 years. The site is located at the mouth of the Fallkill River, where it meets the Hudson River. The site was first used as a mill at the Fallkill River by Dutch settlers circa 1700. Soon after, it was used as a working commercial dock. The Hoffman House was built circa 1740-1780 as a residence, and by 1800 became home to the families that used Upper Landing for mercantile pursuits during the Industrial Revolution. The Reynolds House circa 1820 served dual purposes as a residence and general store at the hub of shipping and passenger services.
This area has recently been re-done as a public park. The structures have been preserved. My photos are from before the public park was created.
