One of the most historically rich cities in the Hudson Valley, Kingston was settled by the Dutch as far back as 1651 and eventually became New York’s first capital. It contains plenty of old architecture, most notably the Old Dutch Church dating back to 1659. Today, the city is home to a thriving arts community.
