Fort Decker, Port Jervis, New York is a stone house built in 1793 from the remains of the fort of that name. The original Fort Decker was built in 1760 by a Dutch settler, Frederick Haynes and was used as a defense and trading post. On July 19, 1779, during the Revolutionary War, when the settlement was known as "Peenpack", the fort was burned during a raid by pro-British Indian leader, Joseph Brandt. The Patriots attempt to retaliate led to a disastrous defeat at the Battle of Minisink.
