From Our Historian…

Hello Stuyvesant,

The Town of Stuyvesant became an official township in April 1823. It was formerly a part of the 10-mile square that had been portioned as the Township of Kinderhook. It contained several Hamlets known as Kinderhook, Landing, Nutten Hook (or Newton Hook), Glencadia, Sunnyside and Poelsburgh.    Stuyvesant Landing & Stuyvesant Falls replaced Kinderhook Landing & Glencadia.  Nutten Hook was known as Coxsockie Station for a short time.

We have set-up a core committee who have been planning several seasons of celebrations for next year. Different locations thru out the Town. Tentative dates April, July, Harvest time, and December. With much program planning on going, we do not want to forget our yearly Historic Stuyvesant Day celebration. This is usually the second Saturday in August which is fast approaching, and we hope you will accept a format change.

Instead of our annual Historic themed picnic get together, the 2023 committee plans to make August 2022 Trivia month which will be posted on the Town Website.

This new feature “Did You Know” will be present thru out the month of August.

We will also celebrate Community Night on October 8th with another Vendor Fair & Cruise In.  It will be held at the Town Hall from 3pm – 7pm and thee will be food, vendors, cars, music, and neighbors.  Please plan to join us.
