Dutchess County is a county located in the U.S. state of New York. It sits in the state's beautiful Mid-Hudson Region of the Hudson Valley. As of 2000, the population was 280,150. The county seat is Poughkeepsie. The county was named in honor of Mary of Modena, Duchess of York, second wife of the future King James II.
