Situated at the head of Saint Lawrence River, bordering the United

StatesKingston remains an important military defensive point…

…Where most structures remain original, given the fact that

properties were made of limestone in the early 1900’s

If you visit  during  April -November, Kingston Public Market is a must.

Operating since 1801, this market hide treasures and provides

a sense of community that is clearly reflected on its residents.

    Apparently limestone holds the most ghosts … or something.

      They say limestone retains energy. Ten birds? We don’t know as they flew away. Wink.
