Haunted Huguenot Street

  • Historic Huguenot Street 81 Huguenot Street New Paltz, NY, 12561 United States (map)

Infection and disease during the colonial period were mysterious and ubiquitous. Eighteenth-century doctors attempted to diagnose and treat these illnesses to the best of their knowledge, but too often, their treatments caused insurmountable pain, and in the worst cases, fatality. During the 2018 Haunted Huguenot Street tours, you will discover some of the dangerous diseases that plagued the early New Paltz community, and witness theatrical demonstrations of the remedies that were used in an attempt to cure them.

Tours begin at 5 PM and leave from the Dubois Fort Visitor Center every hour on the hour, with the last tour of the evening leaving at 9 PM.
