Collection Facts


Historical Context

In 1907, Ade Reher, a Russian-Jewish immigrant, purchased the buildings at 99-101 Broadway in Kingston, NY. Her large family operated a kosher bakery downstairs while living upstairs. Each Reher sibling played a different role in keeping the business running. The family ran the bakery from 1908 until 1980.

Scope of Collection

This collection includes objects and documents that were left behind by the Reher family in their home and business dating from 1900-2004 as well as artifacts that were recovered from the building’s courtyard during a 2013 archeological dig. This selection of digitized artifacts includes handwritten recipe books, family photographs, and business-related ephemera.
