History
Vintage 9 Vassar building
Vintage 12 Vassar building

These landmark Victorian buildings were underwritten by John Guy Vassar and Matthew Vassar Jr. The Vassar Brothers were the nephews of the founder of Vassar College. This philanthropic family dedicated their lives and fortunes to the enrichment of the community. In 1883, they sought to establish sites that fulfilled the needs of the era and their vision of a better society. The large Italianate structure at #9 Vassar Street was designed and used as a home for aged men and the theater building at #12 Vassar Street was created to bring the Arts, Culture and the discussion of science and nature to the City of Poughkeepsie.
