About
Historic Huguenot Street is committed to helping visitors understand the historical forces that have shaped America. At our 10-acre National Historic Landmark District in New Paltz, New York, visitors experience over 300 years of history across seven historic stone-house museums, a reconstructed 1717 French Church, the Huguenot community’s original burying ground, and a replica Esopus Munsee wigwam. Period rooms and exhibits tell the stories of a French Huguenot settlement as it evolved over time, and reveal the history of the area’s Indigenous and enslaved African peoples and Dutch settlers. Historic Huguenot Street envisions a nationally recognized historic site that will inspire guests to think in new ways about American history while also carrying forward the conversation about the relationship between past and present.

Great stroll through history. Friendly tour guide. Very knowledgeable. Actual descendent from the original 12 families that settled the area.

It was very interesting. Tom was a very good tour guide and answered all of our questions. Not too long, and very informative. I recommend it if you’re in the area.

It was a rainy day with no one out and about. We walked around and looked at the houses and read the info. If in the area worth a stop.

The wife and booked a Boos and Brew tour for our visit to Huguenot street. It’s was an ok tour, I think the actual history tour would be much better. The old burial grounds was wicked cool.

I love history and was excited to see this, as it is the oldest street in the country. We walked around with the audio guide, since no tour was available. But we were disappointed that no home but the visitor center was open, and this on a Saturday. You can only see so much peering into windows. Also, not much in the audio tour or visitor center said much about the beliefs of the Hugenots which caused them to be persecuted.

We gained a much greater appreciation of the history and culture of the area, thanks to the very interesting walking tour led by Gabriel. A great way to see the inside and outside of the houses on Huguenot Street

This is truly an interesting historical site! There is a free app you can download to look at the houses, which are from the early 18th century. You can also get a guided tour by checking in at the gift shop/museum.

Eddie Moran, the tour guide, was charming, personable, and extremely knowledgeable. Being an actual descendant of the Huguenot families, he made the history even more fascinating, lively, and riveting. I highly recommend the tour and the tour guide.
