Details

At the Senate House in Kingston, New York`s first capital, discover how, amidst the turmoil of a British military invasion in the fall of 1777, the elected representatives of rebellious New Yorkers met to form a new state government. New York`s first Senate met in the simple stone house of a local merchant. A month later, the government had to flee as the British torched the city. The building and grounds are open to the public as a museum, with a wide range of artwork and historical objects.
