Historic Huguenot Street is a bucolic, 10-acre National Historic Landmark District and museum.

The site encompasses seven historic house museums, a visitor center, a research library, nationally recognized archives, a reconstructed 1717 French church, an authentically-built replica Esopus Munsee wigwam, and numerous original outbuildings. It also features program space, active archaeological sites with Native American artifacts dating to 9,000 B.C., and a burial ground dating back to the first French settlers. Its thousands of collection pieces support the interpretation of the historic houses, providing a survey of everyday life in rural New York state from the pre-Colonial period through the first half of the 20th century.

In its role as a community gathering place, Historic Huguenot Street hosts educational and innovative programs and festive community events throughout the year. Explore portions of the Historic Huguenot Street Permanent Collection, including pieces relating to African-American history, Native Americans in the Hudson Valley, the Civil War, historic clothing and textiles, colonial manuscripts and more here.
