HMVA Summer in the City

(City of Kingston)

Saturday, June 15, 2024 10 AM

Meet up in Kingston Area Library's parking lot located on Green Street, Kingston, NY. This is just past the parking lot of the Hoffman House (about directly across from 175 Green Street for GPS purposes). We'll be able to leave our cars there all day.

Then we'll take it from there,

as we stroll the best preserved 17th century street plan in the whole United States!
(Ok I might be a little biased)

The plan is to make the plan up as we go!

BUT, we are promised an 18th Century "mystery house" cellar to rafter tour, and as time permits we'll stop at other points of interest along the way.

Assemble for lunch at 12:30 at the
Hoffman House
Restaurant and Tavern
94 North Front Street
Kingston NY 12401.

Tour Host: Rob 845 750 3074

SAVE THE DATE: July 20, 2024, Mohawk Valley Tour, hosted by Judy St Leger
