The Association of Public Historians of New York State (APHNYS) will hold their 2022 Annual Conference of municipal historians September 19th through 21st, in Kingston, Ulster County, NY.
The conference draws more than 100 government-appointed historians and affiliates from across the state.
The Conference will focus on the history of Kingston, and some of the lesser-known people and events that have shaped the state’s past.
Situated on the bank of the Hudson River, Kingston originally was home to the Esopus people, a tribe of Munsee Lenape (Delaware). The area witnessed the activities of Dutch traders, American revolutionaries, and British arsonists, as well as cement manufacturers and canal and railway travelers, among others.
The city has the distinction of being New York State’s first capital. Today, it is home to an increasingly diverse group of people with their own unique histories.
Registration for members is $65 for the full conference, $25 for one day, and $100 for virtual attendance. Registration for non-members is $85 for the full conference, $50 for one day, and $150 for the virtual conference.
