The Matthewis Persen House, one of four colonial stone buildings occupying the crossroads of John and Crown streets in Uptown Kingston, is one of the neighborhood’s most visited historic sites. Owned and partially restored by Ulster County, the building, which dates back to the 17th century, consists of a labyrinth of open floors and staircases. A display of artifacts dug up from the site provide a fascinating glimpse into a deep slice of time, spanning three centuries of Kingston history. But this season, the Persen House will also be telling the story of Rondout, in the 19th and 20th centuries.
