1. The Senate House – 1676 Marker
Inscription.  
          The Senate House is so called because the first elected Senate of the State of New York met in this building on the morning of September 9, 1777.

          Colonel Wessel Ten Broeck built this house for his home in 1676 in the tiny village of Esopus (Kingston). In front of it, on a hill overlooking the lowlands, ran the line of stockades which enclosed the settlement against Indian attack. This historic home was purchased by the State in 1888.

          An adjacent Museum houses a notable portrait gallery, rich manuscript collections, and other Hudson Valley memorabilia.
