Washington Town, Dutchess County, NY

In 1937 Mabbettsville was a hamlet consisting of a store, a garage, and a cluster of houses; it was formerly named Flikentown in honor of one of the Great Nine Partners. The present name was derived from James Mabbett, a commission auctioneer who settled here early in the 19th century. [1]
