The Matthewis Persen House Museum

Ulster County invites you to the Matthewis Persen House Museum and Cultural Heritage Center, a cornerstone of the City of Kingston's historic Stockade District. This house has witnessed many important moments in Ulster County's history. It was burned at least twice, saw wars and revolution and was home to doctors, tailors, grocers, druggists and innkeepers. As you walk through the House, you walk through time. Please join us at the Persen House located at 74 John Street, Kingston, New York, where we bring Ulster County's rich history alive!

The Matthewis Persen House is closed for the 2021 season.  See you in spring 2022!
