Historic Huguenot Street's mission is to preserve a unique Hudson Valley Huguenot settlement and engage diverse  audiences in the exploration of America’s multicultural past in order to  understand the historical forces that have shaped America.

HHS encompasses 30 buildings across 10 acres that was the heart of the original New Paltz settlement,  including seven stone houses that date to the early eighteenth century.   It was originally founded in 1894 by the descendants of the first  settlers as the Huguenot Patriotic, Historical, and Monumental Society  to preserve what remained of their French and Dutch heritage. 

Since  then, Historic Huguenot Street has grown into an innovative museum,  chartered as an educational corporation by the University of the State  of New York, that is dedicated to protecting our historic buildings,  conserving an important collection of artifacts and manuscripts, and  promoting the stories of the Huguenot Street families, from the  sixteenth century to today.
