1741 Mesier Homestead Historic Site Tour Day - Discover the History!

1741 Mesier Homestead Historic Site Tour Day - Discover the History!

Take a walk back in time as you tour this 1741 home of the original settlers of the area that is now known as the Village of Wappingers Falls. Learn about its early history during the Revolutionary War era, with the first owner a loyal Patriot, and the 2nd owner a Tory loyalist. Hear the story of the Wappingers Tea Party of 1777. Explore the Victorian Era-styled rooms of the Homestead and their displays of local antiquities, reflective of the later generations of the Mesier family, and see a portion of the Wappingers Historical Society's 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 homeschoolers, senior citizen groups, scout troops or special needs groups by calling 845-632-1281.
