This historic Dutch stone house in Kingston’s Stockade District was originally built circa 1690, but like all of the other surrounding stone houses, it was burned down during the Burning of Kingston in 1777. Rebuilt afterwards with some alterations, the house is named for Egbert DuMond (also spelled “DuMont”), Ulster County’s first sheriff who lived here. Legend has it that the house was noted for having Kingston’s first piano and that people would gather at the window to watch DuMond’s daughter play. Today, it is a private residence. Next door is the house of Egbert’s niece, Rachel Dumont.
