The Historic Matthewis Persen House | History
May 25th – The Matthewis Persen House, one of Ulster County’s oldest and most significant buildings is open again. Named after its longest resident, Matthewis Persen (1739-1819), the house is rapidly becoming a proven feature of Kingston’s Stockade National Historic District. The house has witnessed it all, from Native American contact to the present day. It was burned twice, saw wars and revolution and was home to doctors, tailors, grocers, druggists and innkeepers. Matthewis himself, kept a tavern there. An archaeological dig in just one section uncovered over 20,000 artifacts including Native American projectile points, Delft tiles, Colonial era cannon balls, and post holes from the former 1658 stockade. The house is open Tuesday through Saturday 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. from Memorial Day through Labor Day. The Matthewis Persen House is located at 74 John Street, in the Stockade District of uptown Kingston. It’s one of four landmark buildings on the corner of John and Crown Streets – the only intersection in the United States with pre-revolutionary stone houses on all four corners. For more information please contact Nina Postupack, Ulster County Clerk, at (845) 340-3040.
