Is Beekman, New York and Poughquag, New York the Same Place?
We ❤ Beekman, or is it Poughquag?
Everything I Thought was in Beekman has A Poughquag Address
Let's start with the Beekman Diner on Route 55, their address is Poughquag, BUT it's the Beekman Diner...LOL! When I lived in Poughquag I would stop at least once a week for lunch, if you've never been try it! The same goes for one of my kid's favorite parks, the Beekman Recreation site is a great place to swim and play in the summer, but again Poughquag, not Beekman...LOL!
Beekman is the Town
To try and clear everything up Kelly from Clinton Corners texted us, "I just passed the sign going to Green Haven that says the town of Beekman includes the hamlets of Beekmanville, Poughquag, and Stormville." Angela also called us to share the same thing, and if you search on Wikipedia for Poughquag, it sends you to the Beekman page.♂️
Home to the First Firehouse in Dutchess County
Joe, a member of the Beekman Fire Department called to share that Beekman was the first of the 8 original towns in Dutchess County to have a firehouse. The first Dutchess County Firehouse was located where the Beekman Town Hall is now.
Eddie Murphy Lived in Beekman?
Jerry called us to share that when he lived in the area he remembers that actor/comedian Eddie Murphy once had a place in the area, he said it was called the Avon Estates. We can't confirm it but love Jerry so much that we are taking his word for it.
