It is convenient to Connecticut, the eastern Part of Dutchess County, and southeastern Columbia County.Today with the recent extension of the Harlem Valley line of the railroad, commuters are coming into the area in large numbers.   Amenia New York real estate continues to be a destination for second homes for residents of the New York Metropolitan area.

According to the U. S. Census for 2010, the town has a total area of 43.6 square miles and a population of 4,436 people. The median income for a household in the town was $58,000. The per capita income for the town was $22,095.

The name AMENIA means “a pleasant place.”   This name was coined by Dr. Thomas Young in 1762, when the Amenia Precinct was formed. Certainly, the picturesque views from DeLaVergne Hill and from Depot Hill Road confirm the appropriateness of the name, as do the pastoral scenes throughout the town.

Dr. Thomas Young arrived in Amenia around 1755 and married Mary Winegar, daughter of Capt. Garrett Winegar, of Amenia and Sharon, near Amenia Union.   Dr. Young was not only a physician.   He was a poet, known for his epic poem, “The Conquest of Quebec,” a writer of political pamphlets, and a Latin scholar, who also gave the State of Vermont its name.   Young was an ardent patriot and a friend of the irreverent patriot, Ethan Allen of Salisbury, Connecticut.

Before colonization by the Europeans, the hillsides around today’s Amenia and Wassaic were almost treeless.   The native Americans had burned the forests so that they could hunt the deer. During the 1700s many settlers came to these valleys and started farming.

The original hamlet of Amenia, with its 1758 Red Meeting House and Old Burying Ground, was located a mile north of today’s Amenia.   The present village, once known as Payne’s Corners, and later as Ameniaville, was established at the crossroads of the Dutchess Turnpike and the old Albany Post Road in the early 1800’s.   The advent of the Amenia Seminary in 1835 and the railroad in 1851 contributed to the development of the town.    Four churches, two hotels, a theater, The Amenia Times newspaper, established in 1852, and the influx of Irish immigrants all attest to Amenia’s growth in the 19th century.

The hamlet of Wassaic claims to have been the home of the first white settler of the area, Mr. Richard Sackett.   Sackett died in 1746 and was buried near his cabin, which was located south of Wassiac, near the Steel Works.   There was a forge at the Steel Works as early as 1770.   Noah Gridley’s charcoal kilns and iron ore furnace, which began around 1825, developed the iron mining industry of the area.  After the Harlem Valley Railroad was opened in 1850, dairy farming grew rapidly.   Wassaic had not only an active iron furnace, but also a condensed milk factory.   Gail Borden’s condensed milk factory, established in 1859, made Wassaic the center of the dairy industry in Amenia for at least 60 years.
