The Reher Center for Immigrant Culture and History opened its new gallery space on July 7, 2018. Our gallery is the only space in Kingston devoted to the history of the Rondout neighborhood and the immigrant stories of the Hudson Valley, past and present.
Summer 2018 Reher Center Programming was made possible by a generous donation from the Norman I. Krug family of Sonoma Valley inn/Dry Creek Inn.
You can still purchase your copy of The Story Continues by Nancy Donskoj.
Moving portraits, in photographs and text, honor the hard-working entrepreneurs who are rebuilding the Rondout neighborhoods of Kingston NY today and seamlessly connect the immigrant stories of our neighborhood, past and present. All proceeds benefit the Reher Center.

Photography by Phil Mansfield of the third-floor apartment at 101 Broadway, over historic Reher’s Bakery. This evocative space remains a time capsule of the 1950s, the era when the Reher family last rented it out. Accompanying text and programming will explore the timeless experience of living over a store.
This three-part permanent exhibit documents the arc of an American river port and its diverse community over 150 years by focusing on changes to Broadway, Rondout's central commercial strip.
