Important Information for Future Renters

  • Before the English or Dutch ever settled the area, Carmel was home to the Wappingers, a Native American tribe. The Dutch bought land from the Wappingers in 1691 and the English bought the land from the Dutch traders in 1697. Most settlers didn't come until the early 1700s, however.
