Kingston's Crossroads of History
The Senate House State Historic Site in Kingston, NY is an historic treasure dating back to before the Revolutionary War period. Built in 1676, the house became a key location in New York State’s history as it became the seat of New York’s new government. These videos offer a step-back-in-time as History Speaks to us with a view of colonial American life as America forged a new nation. The DAR House, c.1695, is the subject of this Kingston's Crossroads of History series presentation, by historian Nancy Chando, Wiltwyck Chapter DAR member. The DAR House is #75001231 on the Stockade Historic District National Register.
