Mesier Homestead

The Wappingers Historical Society is the custodian of the historic Mesier Homestead in the Village of Wappingers Falls, built in 1741. 


We are very pleased to provide you an opportunity to virtually visit this historic Homestead. The virtual tour is a set of beautiful 360 degree panoramic images of every major room in the Homestead which you can fully control and view.  There is also a clickable point within some rooms which allows you to learn more about a particular item.


We encourage you to come visit us to see the Mesier Homestead in person!  You will learn more about its history, artifacts, and the roles the Brower and Mesier families played in Revolutionary War and the development of Wappingers Falls.
