The Old Upper Road
In Washington's diary it is documented the number of times he traveled this route & his visits to Col. Vanderburgh's home on the Upper Road , which also served as a munitions depot. After the defeat of Burgoyne's army, the defeated officers and their families were taken over Bull's bridge on the Upper Road passing Col. Vanderburgh's house to Fishkill Landing.
