Historic is just our beginning

City of Kingston T

he City of Kingston offers many layers to explore. Founded in 1652, in the foothills of the Catskills along the Hudson River, Kingston is one of the original large, early Dutch settlements in the New World (the other two settlements became New York City and Albany). Initially called the town of Wiltwyck, it eventually merged with the neighboring port town of Rondout, and renamed ‘Kingston’ in honor of the British sovereign. Ironically, Kingston is where independent-minded colonists wrote the New York State Constitution in 1777, and where the state’s first capital was established. It was then promptly burned to the ground by the invading British army! Luckily, the city was quickly rebuilt and today many of the original stone structures remain. Kingston’s unique role in history did not stop after the 18th century. It became an important commercial and transportation hub, especially after the opening of the groundbreaking, 108-mile D & H (Delaware and Hudson) Canal. Canals, and later railroads, helped to maintain Kingston’s important role in the expanding nation. Kingston was an important source of agriculture, timber, coal, bluestone slate, bricks, and cement for the growing nation. In the 20th century, Kingston became home to technology businesses, and most recently, home to many nationally recognized creative-based specialty

5

manufacturers. Each commercial wave of history has made its mark on Kingston, evidenced today by its fascinating and diverse architecture and landscape. Today, Kingston has a creative and dynamic community, featuring a diverse selection of galleries, festivals, concerts, public art displays, and more. There are several neighborhoods to explore, each with its own character – Uptown and the Stockade District, Midtown, and the Rondout Waterfront. For those who love to shop, Kingston has many charming boutiques, stores, and antique shops to explore. Gourmands of every kind can revel in Kingston’s growing and diverse range of restaurants, many retaining local graduates of the nearby world-renowned Culinary Institute of America. Being situated near some of the most productive farmland in New York State, Kingston enjoys a bountiful and fun Farmers’ Market. Outdoor enthusiasts will find that Kingston is ideally situated amidst an exciting range of recreational locales, with beautiful landscapes perfect for hiking, biking, kayaking, bird watching, jet skiing, skiing, skating, boating and much more. And, of course, there is its rich history – Kingston has many museums to enjoy, reflecting its many layers of history and culture. Welcome to Kingston!

The Matthewis Persen House

“Uptown” – The Historic Stockade District Kingston’s Uptown neighborhood is where visitors will find many fine examples of America’s early colonial history. The first permanent settlement was built in 1652. Governor Stuyvesant ordered the original stockade built in 1658 to protect the early settlers from local Indian attacks. Originally called Wiltwyck, Uptown Kingston is the largest remaining example of early Dutch settlement in New York State. In 1777, Uptown Kingston’s Senate House is where the first capital of New York was established, and visitors can explore many historic sites and museums that represent that era.

Uptown Kingston today is a thriving neighborhood with many shops, restaurants, museums, galleries, music venues, farmers’ markets, festivals and more. Though abundant public parking is available, the area is best enjoyed on foot. It boasts a highly diverse range of architectural details for visitors to explore, a chronology of American architecture that spans four centuries: from the early Dutch and English, to Federalist, Georgian, Greek Revival, Victorian, Romanesque, Italianate, Neo-Classical, Art Deco and Contemporary.

at least twice, saw wars and revolution and was home to doctors, tailors, grocers, druggists and innkeepers. As you walk through the Persen House you walk through time and history comes alive!

The current Courthouse, built in 1818, sits on the same site as the original Courthouse erected in 1683 and is the oldest property in the United States to house a public building. Within its walls noted abolitionist Sojourner Truth won the freedom of her son, Peter, becoming the first African American woman to successfully challenge a white man in a

Broadway

Midtown Midtown Kingston reflects a history of industry and expansion. Following the opening of the railroad in the mid 19th century, which ran between (Uptown) Kingston and Rondout, there was a natural growth towards the new transportation line.

Midtown is where Kingston’s increasingly active arts district is located and where visitors will find an eclectic mix of shops, galleries, music venues, restaurants, specialized manufacturing (many related to the arts), microbreweries, city government offices, Kingston Hospital, and many fine examples of Victorian and early 20th century architecture.

Rondout Waterfront

“Downtown” – The Historic Rondout Waterfront District The Rondout neighborhood is located on the shore of Rondout Creek near where it meets the Hudson River. Initially a key port for the shipment of timber and agriculture to the colonies and beyond, the area boomed with the opening of the Delaware and Hudson Canal in 1828; it became a trade hub for coal from Northeast Pennsylvania, bluestone from the Catskill Mountains, cement from Rosendale, and bricks made from local clay. The area grew so rapidly that it incorporated as the Village of Rondout in 1849, and by 1872 it merged with the thenvillage of Kingston to form today’s city. By the time the canal closed in 1899, the port area featured buildings in all the 19th century architectural styles.

Charmingly framed by the Kingston-Port Ewen Suspension Bridge, built in the 1920s, the neighborhood is referred to locally as the Rondout or the Strand (sometimes known as ‘Downtown’ as well). The Kingston Marina is located in the Rondout, a great place to book a ride on one of several tour boats of the Hudson River, and view the Rondout Lighthouse. The neighborhood is invitingly walkable and has a waterfront park, many charming restaurants, boutiques, and captivating architecture. There are several museums, art galleries, antique shops, and gift shops to explore. The Kingston Heritage Area Visitors Center is also in the Rondout Waterfront District. The neighborhood was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1979.

The Burning of Kingston October 16-18

T

he Burning of Kingston is a weekend-long celebration of American history, bravery, sacrifice and resilience. In October 1777, during the American Revolutionary War, Kingston was targeted for retaliation by the British following the Continental Army’s first major victory at the Battle of Saratoga. Infuriated, soldiers from British-captured New York City, sailed up the Hudson River to take retaliation against the biggest colonial target in the area – Kingston, the new capital of New York State. Landing at Kingston Point, the red coats marched along the Rondout Creek and up to the Stockade area (Uptown Kingston area), burning houses along the way. A small naval skirmish also took place along the Rondout Creek. In advance of the arrival of the British, some brave colonists, including Deputy County Clerk Christopher Tappen, saved key documents and ledgers of the county and new state capital. Some of the locals engaged the British with guerilla fighting; however, most of the city was abandoned ahead of their approach. After only a few hours of work, the British burned down over 300 buildings, and left Kingston in ruins. However, the resilient and brave residents returned and quickly rebuilt. Throughout the Burning of Kingston weekend, many businesses, restaurants, museums, organizations, and entertainment venues participate in fun and different ways. Many local businesses will be offering discounts for those dressed in Colonial-era costume. Be sure to visit Kingston’s website for the most up-to-date event information.
