Once we found the correct site and not the local golf course which the gps address sent us to. We had a fabulous, informative 90mins guided tour. Great value and Maria our guided was very knowlegable. We have already recommended our friends visit.

Covered housing and gear from a Native American lodge to a 1950's kitchen. No musty dusty, but a colorful, no-rope look at how past occupants, slaves to wealthy, really lived. Marie, our spirited guide, incorporated our questions & comments gracefully into her presentation. I'll do...More

Huguenot Street is always open. You might not get into some of the old stone houses but you certainly can view them from the outside. There are also old headstones that are visible in a small cemetery on the street.
