Kingston New York: The Architectural History and Guide
Author: William B. Rhoads
Explorers of Kingston, New York are guided by detailed maps to over 130 sites in nine walking tours that are fully illustrated and described. More than 250 years of Hudson Valley architecture are on display, from venerable stone houses that survived the burning of the community by the British in 1777, to landmarks of the Victorian era and the early twentieth century. Greek Revival houses, Gothic Revival churches, picturesque cemeteries, the colorful Ruskinian City Hall, somber factories, a Hudson River lighthouse, World War II-era Quonset huts- all contribute to the varied and distinguished fabric of the city.
