The Village of Wappingers Falls is a village in Dutchess County, New York. The community was named for the cascade in Wappinger Creek. A portion of the village is in the town of Wappinger and the other part is in the town of Poughkeepsie, with Wappinger Creek forming the dividing line between the towns.The Village of Wappingers Falls also holds claim to New York State's 6th oldest library, the Grinnell Library.HistoryThe Wappinger were a confederacy of Native Americans whose territory in the 17th century spread along the eastern bank of the Hudson River. Primarily based in what is now Dutchess County, New York, their territory bordered Manhattan Island to the south, the Mahican territory bounded by the Roeliff-Jansen Kill to the north, and extended east into parts of Connecticut. “Wappinger” means “easterner” in most Algonkian languages.The area was part of the Rombout Patent. In 1741, two Dutchmen, Nicholas and Adolphus Brewer, purchased 750 acres of land around the falls and they built the first stone house in the village near the present Mill Street. In 1742, the Brewers built a mill on the east side of Wappinger Creek. Nicholas Brewer built the Mesier Homestead, which he sold in 1777 to Matthew VanBenschoten, who, in turn, sold it to Peter Mesier, a merchant from New York City.
