Rondout Tours Scheduled

Looking for something to do later this month? How about immersing into the local history scene? This just in from the Friends of Historic Kingston (includes a few calendar items):


KINGSTON – The monthly walking tour of the Rondout National Historic District, offered by Friends of Historic Kingston, will take place on Saturday, June 26, departing at 11 a.m. from the Kingston Heritage Area Visitors Center, 20 Broadway.

The one-hour tour traces the rapid rise of Rondout from farmland to a prosperous maritime village as the terminus of the Delaware and Hudson Canal in the nineteenth century. The rich legacy of commercial buildings, cast-iron storefronts, homes and churches built by the various immigrant groups who settled in Rondout is viewed. The tour fee is $5 per adult and $2 for children under 16. Some uphill walking is involved.
