Poughkeepsie serves as the county seat of Dutchess County. It's located in the Hudson Valley, about halfway between New York City and Albany. The area was settled by the Dutch in 1683. Its quirky name is of Wappinger Indian origin, meaning "reed-covered lodge by the little water place." Today, it's home to Vassar College, Marist College and Dutchess Community College, which means homes for rent are surrounded by an eclectic mix of residents. Its great location and tight sense of community make Poughkeepsie a wonderful place to raise a family.
