The Huguenots did not encounter an untamed forest when they arrived in the Hudson Valley. For a millennium, Munsee Native Americans had already lived upon and settled the land that would eventually become New Paltz. The Event Chairs and Board of Historic Huguenot Street are proud to the host this year’s inaugural Spring Celebration in honor of the Munsee. Guests will be able to experience the wigwam being built on site to mark the 340th anniversary of the land agreement between the Munsee people and Huguenot settlers.
