Once a handful of homes and storehouses known as Kingston Landing, this area grew rapidly with the D and H Canal. Shipyards, foundries, stone quarries and brick yards sprouted along the Rondout Creek attracting Irish and German immigrants. The waterfront and rocky hillside above were soon crammed with warehouses, stables, homes and businesses. In the early 1900's as railroads and later as highways became more efficient means of shipping and travel, Rondout Creek's commercial prominence began to fade. In the 1960's a large portion of the area was demolished under urban renewal. Today, the Rondout area is being revitalized under a cooperative effort by government and private investors.
