Kingston has Four Historic Districts: The Rondout-West Strand; Chestnut Street; Fair Street and The Stockade.

In 1777 the British sailed up the Hudson River, took Forts Montgomery and Clinton and then continued up the Hudson to Kingston, then the capital of New York State. From the river they proceeded to the stockade surrounding the town and eventually burnt over 300 dwellings to the ground. Many of the buildings were made of stone and were subsequently rebuilt.

As our time was limited we decided to focus on the ‘Stockade District‘.
