The Reformed Dutch Church of Fishkill Landing, now known as the Reformed Church of Beacon, is presently the oldest church in Beacon, New York. Built in the Gothic Revival style in 1859, it is located on NY 9D about 0.5 miles (1 km) south of Beacon's municipal complex. It offers an excellent view of the Hudson River from the top of a gentle slope.

William Few, Jr., a Founding Father of the United States, was originally buried in the yard of the church but was later re interred at St. Paul's Church, Augusta, Georgia.

The church was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1988. Its postal address is: 1113 Wolcott Avenue NY 9D, Beacon, NY 12508.
