The old Senate House in Kingston, (Ulster County, N. Y.). New York's newly organized State Senate met in this house for their first meeting in 1777. The house was burned by the British in the same year and later rebuilt. The image is of the front of the single story stone house with three chimneys, two front doors, several shuttered windows, and a wooden porch on the side of the building. Also in view are sidewalk and road in the foreground and part of a large white house next door.
