Reher Center for Immigrant Culture and History


The Reher Center for Immigrant Culture and History once a Jewish immigrant owned bakery from the early 1900’s. First established in 1908 by Frank Reher from Krakow in Austria-Hungary. Today visitors can take a tour of the Reher Center, learn about the bakery and how it would operate on a Sunday morning in 1959. Also at the Reher Center, travelers can catch the new exhibit “Sewing in Kingston” showcasing garment manufacturing and the immigrant communities that worked within the garment industry for the last century. “The Reher Center fosters belonging by engaging all people through culture, community, work, and bread. Together, we preserve and explore our historic bakery site and honor its legacy by amplifying Kingston and Hudson Valley immigrant voices and contributions, past and present”
