    Kingston, dating to the arrival of the Dutch in 1652, is a vibrant city with rich history and architecture, was the state's first capital, and a thriving arts community.

    Historic Churches

    Kingston is home to many historic churches. The oldest church still standing is the First Reformed Protestant Dutch Church of Kingston which was organized in 1659. Referred to as The Old Dutch Church, it is located in Uptown Kingston. Many of the city's historic churches populate Wurts street (6 in one block) among them Hudson Valley Wedding Chapel is a recently restored church built in 1867 and now a chapel hosting weddings. Another church in the Rondout is located at 72 Spring Street. Trinity Evangelical Lutheran Church was founded in 1849. The original church building at the corner of Hunter Street and Ravine Street burned to the ground in the late 1850s. The current church on Spring Street was built in 1874.

    Kingston, NY

    Kingston became New York's first capital in 1777, and was burned by the British on October 13, 1777, after the Battles of Saratoga. In the 19th century, the city became an important transport hub after the discovery of natural cement in the region, and had both railroad and canal connections.

    Kingston, NY

    The town of Rondout, New York, now a part of the city of Kingston, became an important freight hub for the transportation of coal from Honesdale, Pennsylvania to New York City through the Delaware and Hudson Canal. This hub was later used to transport other goods, including bluestone. Kingston shaped and shipped most of the bluestone made to create the sidewalks of New York City.

    KINGSTON, NY – Mayor Steven T. Noble is pleased to announce that, through the ARPA Small Business Grant Program, the City of Kingston is awarding $7,500 to 149 local businesses for a total of $1,117,500. Well over half of the awardees are minority, women, or veteran-owned businesses located in Kingston.

    The Small Business Grant Program, which is made possible with funds from the American Rescue Plan Act, was offered in response to the pandemic to help businesses keep their doors open, protect jobs, support community recovery, and increase resilience.

    “We had an overwhelming response to this funding opportunity, way over the amount we anticipated. In response, I made the decision to give as many awards as possible to qualifying local businesses. We are now awarding more than a million dollars,” said Mayor Noble. “I’m thrilled to get this infusion of funding into the community. We value all of our small businesses and I hope this helps our business community continue to recover and thrive.”
