I love history. But as a kid, the history I learned at school didn't hold my interest nearly as much as the historic day trips and vacations that we took with my parents. That's where I could feel history come alive and imagine myself living in that era. Here's a way that you and your family can get a taste of history for free.

Enjoy free admission to Historic Huguenot Street in New Paltz on Sunday, June 16. This includes access to the historic houses and exhibits. Bring a blanket and bagged lunch and have a picnic on the grounds. Enjoy a day with the family as you learn about the families who founded New Paltz.

60 minute tours are available every half hour beginning at 10:30 am, with the last tour departing from the DuBois Fort Visitor Center at 3:30 pm. Tours have a max capacity of 12 guests at a time and that they fill up quickly, so visitors should plan to arrive at least 15 minutes before the start of their desired tour time.

For more information about the Free Family Day at Historic Huguenot Street, and other events at the site, visit their facebook page.
