The settlement of Coxsackie began in the 17th Century,
around 1652 as part of the development of New Netherlands. The area became a district in 1772, and the Town of Coxsackie was founded in 1788. One of the first settlers here was Pieter Bronck, of the same family for which The Bronx is named. In 1663, he built the Pieter Bronck House in West Coxsackie (open as a museum). The nearby family burial ground includes a separate plot with marked graves for slaves of the family.
The Reed Street Historic District in the Village of Coxsackie includes thirty-two buildings. Definitely a mercantile section, the district is characterized by two and three-story, mid-nineteenth century brick commercial buildings. Along Reed Street they have contiguous walls. Most have first floor storefronts opening directly onto the sidewalks, and many feature period doorways giving access to second and third floor offices and living quarters. Among the few exceptions are three Federal residences, a hotel of the 1880’s, a period fire house, and a modern post office. Particularly interesting are late nineteenth century cast-iron columns added to some storefronts.
By mid-century, Reed’s Landing had grown into Coxsackie’s principal dock area and had become a thriving doorway to Hudson River trade. Greene County’s agricultural production increased significantly as transportation improved and the population increased before the Civil War. A number of local industries developed: in 1867 appear fourteen dealers, four lawyers, four brick manufacturers, and three hotel keepers. Other enterprises included ship-building, a carriage manufactory, a printing press manufactory, lumber and coal businesses, an iron foundry and a malleable iron company, and, later ice harvesting.
