Mesier Homestead Opens for The Season!

The Mesier Homestead and Museum will be open for volunteer-led guided tours on Sunday, April 14, 2019.

Come learn about the early history of the Mesier Homestead, beginning in 1741 when a Dutchman and his son settled here, built the first stone house in the village and developed mills along the Wappingers Creek.  Discover the story of Peter Mesier, a Tory loyalist, his store and the Wappingers Tea Party of 1777.  Explore the Victorian Era-styled rooms of the Homestead and their displays of local antiquities, and see a portion of our collection of Native American artifacts.

Guided tours will also be offered on Sunday, May 19th & the 2nd Sunday of each month thereafter.  Special tours can be arranged for groups such as senior citizen organizations, school groups and scout troops by calling 845-632-1281.
