blogger image 2133312724 We're located in north east Dutchess County, New York and between Amenia, Wassaic, South Amenia, Leedsville, Smithfield Valley, Amenia Union and South Amenia, we have a population of 4,436 as of the 2010 census. The name is derived from the Latin word, amoena, which means "pleasant to the eye" and you'll find that's true especially in our many vistas, views and parklands. 23b76 cricket5
Whether you're coming up on the Metro North Railroad Harlem line to Ten Mile River or Wassaic for the weekend (we're less than 2 hours from NY City), or driving down from upstate and New England for our special events, we welcome you to our home.
