The Senate House State Historic site was the meeting place for the original New York State Senate and where colonists shaped a newly created government.
 

The site features the Senate House, which reflects the Dutch way of life that characterized Kingston in the 18th century. Guided tours are offered that will take you through the kitchen, family room, and parlor of an 18th century Dutch home and end in the room where the first New York State Senate met in 1777.
 

Adjacent to the Senate House is the Senate House Museum, which was built in 1927 to accommodate the burgeoning collections. Among its treasures are major art works by John Vanderlyn and other members of the Vanderlyn family of Kingston. The museum also includes the site's popular new exhibit; "Kingston Stockade: New Netherlands' Third City," discussing Kingston's early history.
 

The site is also host to educational programs, re-enactments and special events throughout the year.
