After our lunch we took a quick walk around Main Street, Peekskill. Here the First Reformed Church of Fishkill, organized 1716, built 1725 occupied 1776 by New York Provincial Congress (making Fishkill briefly the State capitol). It also served as a prison during the Revolution. One famous prisoner was the ubiquitous American spy Enoch Crosby whose trial was a sham designed to convince the British that he was not a spy.

Another view of the church.

Part of the cemetery.

The small cemetery has a number of very old graves, many of which bear Dutch inscriptions

As with many of the older cemeteries around here, a lot of the earlier gravestones have deteriorated badly.
