The villages of Matteawan and Fishkill Landing merged to form the City of Beacon in 1912.
However, prior to that time Matteawan would have been a village in the Town of Fishkill.
Fishkill Landing was on the Hudson River and Matteawan was a mile east of that beneath the
shadow of Mount Beacon.
Also, the Beacon Historical Society meets at the Howland Library in Beacon on Main Street.
They may have other information available.
