Huguenot Street holds the distinction of being the "oldest street in America with its original houses". Huguenot Street, a national historic landmark, is located on a slight promontory above the banks of the Wallkill River at the western edge of the Village of New Paltz. The site compromises a collection of house museums with construction dates from 1692 through 1890. The settlement was originally the focus of a 39,683 acre Royal Patent granted to the French refugees on May 26, 1677. The homes are furnished with heirloom and period pieces that reflect their multi-generational family ownership. Included at the site are five Colonial era stone houses, a Federal period house, and a late Victorian house. Also, the French Church and burying ground, a library, carriage museum, museum, gift shop and picnic facilities. Adjacent to the site is the Huguenot Trail and Wildlife Sanctuary.
