Huguenot Street

    Huguenot Street is a historic place unlike anything you've ever seen before.

The site includes a collection of 7 museum houses that date as far back as the early 1700's and a meticulously reconstructed French Church. The houses are furnished with many antiques from the original families' time. In addition there is an ancient burial ground, a library, museum shop archives a picnic grove, and several other supporting houses, some of them privately rented, some of them used for the business of Historic Huguenot Street.
Included in the historic portions of the site are The LeFevre House, The Jean Hasbrouck House, The Deyo House, The French Church, The DuBois Fort Visitor Center, The Bevier-Elting House, The Abraham Hasbrouck House and the Freer-Low House.

Guided tours are available seasonably throughout the Spring, Summer and Fall. Visit the website at www.huguenotstreet.org for details
or call 845-255-1660 or 845-255-1889.
