Historic Huguenot Street is pleased to announce a special revival of Stone House Day, a formerly annual tradition, which will be hosted in partnership with the Town of New Paltz. On Saturday, September 8, the National Historic Landmark District will host Old New Paltz Stone House Day to celebrate the 340th anniversary of the settling of New Paltz.
After nearly ten years, HHS is bringing back Old New Paltz Stone House Day, with a stronger focus on the diversity of Hudson Valley history. It will be a celebration of all the cultures that impacted New Paltz and Ulster County including African, Dutch, English, Esopus Munsee, and French.
Guided tours will feature glimpses into all seven historic stone houses, two of which have been entirely out of public view for many years. Performances, skits, and vendor demonstrations will take place throughout the day while artisans and craftspeople sell handmade goods. Members of the 5th NY Regiment will bring reenactors from multiple time periods, engaging in musket firing, candle making, sewing, blacksmithing, and other activities.
$20 for adults; $15 for seniors, students, children 13-17 years of age, active military members, veterans, and members of Historic Huguenot Street; $10 for children 6-12 years of age; Free for children under 6.
