Scattered across the 12601 and 12603 zip codes, the dream homes ooze history in Dutchess County.

With its central location in Dutchess County and direct train service into New York, Poughkeepsie has been on the upswing in recent years. The now decade-old Walkway Over the Hudson and an active food scene have certainly been factors in its burgeoning renaissance and rediscovery.

There are lots of new options for rentals along its prime Hudson River waterfront, and older homes are being bought up and renovated, even in areas outside of established historic districts. Let’s take a look at some of these historic homes that are now on the market.
