Reher Center for Immigrant Culture and History


The Reher Center is a museum and community touchstone dedicated to immigrant experiences. Located in Kingston's Rondout neighborhood, the Center is housed within two rare, intact 19th-century buildings that were once home to Reher’s Bakery. Founded by Jewish immigrant Frank Reher and his wife Ada, this family-operated business provided mouth-watering bread to its diverse, working-class community for nearly 80 years. Honoring the Reher family's legacy, the Reher Center for Immigrant Culture and History brings people together over stories of the past and cultural traditions of the present. Visitors can explore a bakery circa 1959, immerse in innovative exhibitions, and learn something new at unique public programs.
