    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 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.

    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.

    Mayor Noble Announces September Paving Projects


    KINGSTON, NY – Mayor Steven T. Noble and the Superintendent of Public Works are pleased to announce the next round of paving will be:


    Hooker Street from Lincoln Street to First Avenue

    Moore Street from First Avenue to Second Avenue

    Szymanski Street from Third Avenue to the dead end


    Milling is expected to begin on Monday, September 18, with paving on Thursday, September 21 and Friday September 22, 2023, weather depending.

    “As the weather continues to cooperate, we will continue to get roadwork and paving projects completed through the fall,” said Mayor Noble. “Next month we will be working in coordination with Central Hudson to get Uptown streets repaired and paved, during a time that will be least disruptive to local businesses in the area. We will be announcing more paving projects in the coming weeks.”

    “As always, please be mindful of our DPW staff working in the streets as they continue to improve the condition of our local roads and infrastructure,” said Ed Norman, Superintendent of Public Works.
