Explore local history in pre-colonial and colonial America by taking an informative and engaging 60-minute guided tour of Historic Huguenot Street. You will learn about the region’s indigenous peoples, archaeological discoveries and material culture, the early European settlers and the founding of New Paltz, the institution of slavery in New York, women’s history, and so much more. This year’s tour path will take you inside of the replica Esopus Munsee wigwam, the original community burying ground and reconstructed 1717 French Church, and the early-18th century Abraham Hasbrouck House.
