Mesier Homestead Open for Guided Tours

Mesier Homestead and Museum will be open for volunteer-led guided tours on the 2nd Sunday of each month from 1pm-4pm

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.

Tours are offered every 1/2 hour beginning at 1pm. Last tour is at 3:30pm. The first floor of the Homestead is wheelchair accessible. Special tours mid-week can be arranged for groups such as senior citizens, school groups, scout troops or special needs groups by calling 845-632-1281.
