Mabbettsville is a settlement in Dutchess County, New York, United States.[1] Located 2 miles (3 km) east of Millbrook in the town of Washington on U.S. Route 44,[2] it is approximately 85 miles (137 km) north of New York City.

The settlement forms one of the most concentrated residential areas of the town,[3] and is the location of Town Park,[4] a baseball field – one of the few recreational areas to the east of Washington.[3] The settlement's main commerce is related to recreation, including dog kennels, antique shops, and a range of home and landscape occupations.[3]


The hamlet was previously named "Flikentown" after one of the Great Nine Partners.[5] The new name honours James Mabbett, a commission auctioneer who settled in the hamlet early in the 19th century.[5] In 1937 it consisted of a store, a garage, and a few houses.[5]
