In the fall of 1777 the elected representatives of rebellious New Yorkers convened in Kingston to form a new state government. New York’s first capital was born. The session, New York’s first Senate, met in a simple stone house of a local merchant. Now part of a complex of three buildings, the Senate House tells the story of New York’s early government, and gives a taste of life in the Hudson Valley 200 years ago. Open April thru October plus special events during and after season. (845) 338-2786. Contact Thomas.Kernan@parks.ny.gov or www.nysparks.com
