History

The region was part of the Schuyler Patent, a 1788 patent defining some of the towns and villages in Dutchess County and the Poughkeepsie Regional Area. The village was formerly known as "Upper Red Hook Landing." An adjacent community, "Madalin," was contiguous to Upper Red Hook Landing. The Village of Tivoli was incorporated in 1872, consolidating both Madalin and Upper Red Hook Landing. The village government sits in an old firehouse which was constructed by General John Watts de Peyster.
