Historic Huguenots Last Colonial Overnight of Season

Of the many programs Historic Huguenot Street in New Paltz offers, one of the most popular is Colonial Overnight. Just in time for one last hurrah before school starts, HHS is hosting its final Colonial Overnight. The program will be offered on Friday, August 20th.

No more than fifteen lucky participants will travel back in time to spend the night in a 300 year-old building, prepare and cook a colonial era dinner over an open fire and even get to know some of the people who lived on Huguenot street in the 1700s. There will also be colonial games and crafts, and a tour of the houses at night, some of which are said to be filled with the spirits of people who loved the street so much that they haven’t left. The night will finish off with a camp-in on the floor of the DuBois Fort.

Colonial Overnight begins at 6pm. Drop-off is at the DuBois Fort Visitor Center at 81 Huguenot Street in New Paltz. The program includes dinner and breakfast. Pick-up is at 10am. The cost is $45 per child or $40 for Friends of Huguenot Street. There is also a discount for multiple children from same family. Advance reservations are required. Contact Sarah Wassberg at (845) 255-1889 with any questions or make your reservation online at www.huguenotstreet.org.
