This exhibit focuses on the origins of the Ulster County Clerk's oldest record series, the Dutch Records Collection.

On May 31, 1658, Director-General Peter Stuyvesant ordered the settlers of Wiltwyck (now Kingston) to abandon their scattered dwellings and move to a central, defensible location surrounded by palisades (also known as a stockade). This record not only marks the origin of the Dutch Records Collection, but it also marks the origin of the "Stockade District" in uptown Kingston.

The records on display will bring you on a journey back through time to an era when Kingston was a quaint farming village bustling with European settlers.
