Interesting collection of houses spaced apart. Tour at your own leisure. Not my favorite part of the trip but it's nice to be able to go at your own pace. We opted to fly right through them and head for lunch!

We decided to stop at Huguenot Street Historic District on a visit to New Paltz. Compared to other Historic areas I have visited, this one was a little disappointing. Most of the buildings were closed except for the Gift Shop at the Visitor Center and unless you were willing to pay for a tour guide, you were really done walking... More

Visiting this French Huguenot community is stepping back to another world. After viewing a short documentary, the tour usually begins at the church where we get even more back ground information. Depending on the day or time, some of the homes are open for guided tours. Each one sheds more light on this part of NY history. It is easy... More

We've been thru the stone houses many times before, and enjoyed every tour. The most recent visit was a special weekend, and had re-enactors showing everyday life chores. Actual food preparation on an open campfire, blacksmithing, and a soldier demonstrating what it took to fire one shot with an early gun. A good video about the Huguenots was on a... More

This historic's. area of New Paltz, N.Y. was settled by the Huguenot's. A number of homes and other buildings work at explaining this settlement. It is very interesting in a small street setting.

I had previously visited Huguenot Street, gotten a wonderful tour of the various houses and became a Friend. Among my ancestors is one of the 12 patentees of New Paltz and, whenever I am in the area, I must include a visit in my travel plans. On this visit, I brought along a friend who greatly enjoyed his visit as... More

My family and I took a weekend trip to see and learn about our ancestors (Deyo's). it was extremely educational, enlightening and most of all a lot of fun. The historic preservation of the artifacts, the homes, etc. is absolutely amazing. It really brings you back into time. We were able to take some fantastic pictures to treasure forever and... More

We had a wonderful experience here. Our docent, Carol, was phenomenal! Our young boys had many questions and she answered each one with patience and detailed expertise.

The parking lot map directed us to a "welcome" sort of house/building. Upon entering the house, you are hit in the face with a gift shop and some direction to the intro film viewing area. The intro film was very informative. However, one part of the film made it seem like the houses were open and interactive. We decided to... More
