The Town of Wappinger, the Village of Wappingers Falls and Wappinger Creek all get their name from the local Native American tribe that once called the area home. By the 19th century, Wappinger Creek helped to bring the Hudson Valley into the industrial revolution as the source of power for textile mills, funding the many beautiful homes and historical buildings that remain to this day. Swing by Obercreek Farm to pick up fresh, certified organic foods at their farmstand or taste their latest brew among friends at their tasting room and beer garden. Catch a drama or musical at the County Players Falls Theatre or DJs spinning records at The Vinyl Room.
