The Harrison Meeting House Site and Cemetery, also known as the Germantown Church Site and Cemetery, is located on NY 416 right at its northern terminus with NY 211, across from Orange County Airport just outside the village of Montgomery, New York.

The first settlers of what would eventually become the Town of Montgomery came here and built their church on this site in the early 18th century. It would later be surrounded with their houses. The church no longer stands, but several of those early settlers are buried within the stone wall around the site.  TheTown of Montgomery has taken possession after the site was restored from past neglect and added a small interpretive plaqueIt was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1998. source: Wikipedia
