We discovered Huguenot Street while on a self-guided walking tour of New Paltz. Later we returned to take the Historic Huguenot Street tour. Our guide, Eddie, was great. We learned so much about the Native Americans and early settlers in this area..

Wonderful tour —- especially inside the houses and even in a bit of rain. Maria was delightful!!! She answered questions from our small group. The video is good to watch before heading out.

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.
