Welcome to the Hoffman House! Come in, and enter an aura of hospitality, graciousness, and comfort, from a by-gone era. This stone house, built circa 1679, was once used as a lookout for aggressive action from the local natives, as evidenced by the stairway and hatch to the roof, and is an excellent example of Dutch-Colonial vernacular construction, a rare surviving example from the 17th century, before the English influence brought change to the Dutch methods. The building has remained basically unchanged since its initial construction, and was occupied by the Hoffman family for over two centuries! The last Hoffman family member to occupy the house willed it to the Salvation Army in the late 19th century, who operated their programs from it until the mid-20th century. The current Owners acquired the property in 1976 and restored it to it's original charm. The Hoffman House is now recognized as one of the architectural highlight's of Kingston's Historic Stockade District and is a mainstay of the area's thriving hospitality ,food & beverage scene. For more than 42 years the Hoffman House Restaurant has welcomed both visitors and locals to its warmth, charm, and excellent meals.
