Description The Kirkland Hotel is located at the corner of Main Street and Clinton Avenue in Kingston, New York, United States. It is a Tudor-style building dating to the end of the 19th century.It is a rare surviving example of a wood-frame urban hotel.From the middle of the 20th century to the early 1970's it was also a popular local restaurant. After it closed, redevelopment efforts stalled for several decades and it was almost demolished at one point. Today it is used as office space and apartments after being redeveloped. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places on November 15, 2002, also becoming recognized as a contributing property to the Kingston Stockade District. After its redevelopment, it was recognized with a statewide preservation award.The hotel's main block is a trapezoid-shaped four-story frame building on a stone and brick foundation. A tower rises above the entry on the northwest. The roof is a complex series of intersecting steeply pitched gables.On the west side, along Main Street, are two three-bay gabled blocks with another entrance in between them. A porch with steeply pitched roof wraps around the entire building at the first story. The main entrance is at the base of a tower on the northeast corner, topped with a cupola and finial. The north facade, along Clinton Avenue, has paired gables. The east and south have no decoration. Inside the original layout remains mostly intact. Walls are finished in the original lath and plaster. A stair with metal newels and turned balusters connects all floors.The hotel's site had been a lumberyard from 187685. In 1899 Margaret Conklin purchased the land and built the hotel in the relatively new Tudorbethan architectural style, very different from the mostly conservative, restrained styles hotels of the time were built in. It catered to guests doing business with the county, whose courthouse and offices are nearby.Photographed in Kingston, New York, USA. Composed in Photoshop with layers,
