A landmark of uptown Kingston in the Stockade District, this stately classic Federal-style clapboard house serves as a museum with period furnishings. It was built circa 1812 as the residence for John Sudam, a prominent attorney, New York State Senator and New York State Regent.
 

It passed from Sudam to the Van Leuven family until 1938, when the site was to be sold, the building razed and a gas station constructed. Fred J. Johnston, a local antiques dealer bought the house to save it from demolition and spent the remainder of his life restoring it as his home and antique shop.
 

The elegant home was willed to Friends of Historic Kingston upon Johnston’s death in 1993. It was listed on the Stockade National Historic District Register in 1975.
