The original Swaanendael was a failed Dutch settlement, which was destroyed by Native Americans after its construction in 1631. However, the Dutch didn't give up their ventures so easily. With colonial strongholds north of Godijn Bay such as New Amsterdam and cash crop settlements further southwest, it would only be a matter of time before Swaanendael was successfully established. It eventually was in 1680, with the second settlement named Swaanendael; the Native Americans and Dutch settlers came to an agreement, and Swaanendael soon became a trade center between Natives and colonists within the area.
