The 1741 Mesier Homestead in Wappingers Falls is open for tours on Feb. 19, and in honor of Presidents Day, tours on this day will feature information on the special relationship the Homestead's first occupants had with General Washington's Army during the Revolutionary War, as well as tidbits about connections the village, town and hamlets have to former Presidents.

Guided tours are led by volunteers from the Wappingers Historical Society. Tours at 1pm and 2:30pm.

Visitors will learn about the early history of the Mesier Homestead, beginning in 1741 when the Brower family 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 the collection of Native American artifacts.
