From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Van Keurens is a hamlet in the town of Poughkeepsie in Dutchess County, New York, United States. It was established by Matheus Van Keuren in the eighteenth century.

The Van Keurens lived in Kingston, New York but Matheus owned a foundry on a parcel of land on the Hudson River, close to what is now IBM, in the community of Spackenkill. Matheus forged many of the links of the chain used in the Hudson River Chain at his foundry at Spackenkill. The hamlet is partly a wooded, unpopulated area between IBM and the Clinton Point Quarry owned by Tilcon, Inc., but part of the land rests on a Spackenkill residential community known informally as Crown Heights.
