When the Presbyterians Came to Kingston


"This book covers the history, construction and operation of the large two-storied Presbyterian Church and adjoining school which was built on Community Hill in Kingston in the mid-1920's. The first graduating class was in 1925. Later a hospital was operated in conjunction with this Church and other social programs were offered to the people of the area which would not have otherwise been available.
Many of the available programs were supported by the Board of Home Missions of the Presbyterian Church (especially the Brick Church) in New York state. The book presents the many factors that led to the closing of the school and the destruction of the two-storied Presbyterian Church in the 1940's."
It is 261 pages long and has 108 photos in it. The cost is $29.00 which includes shipping!
