A proposed development of several thousand homes has stalled for a number of years and is planned to adjoin the Carvel Golf Club along the Taconic Parkway which would increase the population of Pine Plains by 50%.
Pine Plains is located in the northern portion of Dutchess County bordering Columbia County to the north, with the Town of Stanford to the south, the Town of Northeast to the east and south and the Town of Milan to the west.
According to the U. S. Census for 2000, the town has a total area of 45 square miles and a population of 7,521 people, 94% white. The median income for a household is $61,380 and the per capita income for the town is $30,043.
The town was part of the Little Nine Partners Patent of 1706. The town was first settled around 1740 by Moravian missionaries to the native Mahican village of Shekomeko. The Town of Pine Plains was formed from the Town of North East in 1823. The north town line is the border of Columbia County, New York.
Three small lakes lie west of the community of Pine Plains: Stissing Lake which is excellent for swimming, Thompson Pond which is dedicated to conservation for wildlife, and Twin Island Lake, the largest out of the lakes lie in the center of the town.
Twin Island Lake Cottage
The most prominent physical feature of Pine Plains real estate is Stissing Mountain which at 1,403 ft (428 m). elevation, towers over the local area. The mountain is formed of pre-cambrian gneiss that remains after numerous cycles of glaciation have scoured and reformed the surrounding terrain. A decommissioned fire tower at the top of the mountain is a popular destination for locals and visitors alike, and offers excellent sights of the surrounding countryside
Pine Plains was once known for its dairy farms, but horse farms have proliferated since the 1970’s, when New York State established its Thoroughbred Breeding and Development Fund. Amid and beyond the green pastures and board fences, country roads wind through pristine stretches of woodland and rolling hills with mountain views and a luminous horizon. In this northeastern corner of Dutchess County, second-home owners tend to be privacy seekers and nature lovers, many with weekday lives in publishing, advertising and other media businesses.
