Fort Montgomery: Fort Kitchawank

  • Fort Montgomery State Historic Site 690 Route 9W Highland Falls, NY, 10928 United States (map)

The Croton Point peninsula contains the remains of a Native American site historically called “Fort Kitchawank” with traces of earthwork features and burial remains. Croton Point’s unique glacial geology and estuarine environment proved an attractive location for prehistoric Native Americans for over 9,000 years. Written accounts by early visitors, including HenryHudson’s mate Robert Juet, paint an interesting but unclear picture of Native American habitations on Croton Point.

NY State Archaeological Association member Scotty Horecky will profile the history and archaeological finds of this unique Native American site in this SATURDAY afternoon talk.
