• Sawkill Creek

The town of Kingston is set apart from the City of Kingston. Today, the town retains its rural character and strong-knit community. Attractively located with the Hudson River to the east and The Catskill and Shawangunk Mountains to the west, Kingston has been called the “Jewel of the Hudson Valley”. A short 1.8-mile hike around part of Onteora Lake will reveal signs of former bluestone quarrying, an industry which brought many immigrant laborers to town whereby they established communities, which shaped the town’s rich history.
