‘Wines & Wickets’ on calendar in New Paltz

26 Apr

NEW PALTZ, NY — A sure sign of spring is the activity in the city’s Historic Huguenot Street neighborhood.

Beginning Saturday, May 1, the DuBois Fort Visitor Center there will be from 10:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. every day except Wednesday.

From 4 to 6 p.m. that day, the annual “Wickets & Wine” event will be held on the lawns, combining casual croquet with tastings of wines and lemonade. All skill levels are welcomed to participate.

The National Historic Landmark neighborhood preserves what is believed to be the oldest continuously inhabited street in America with its original houses. The principle structures were built by Dutch immigrants in the late 17th and early 18th centuries. Each house today is presented in a different time period from the 18th through the mid-20th centuries.

The neighborhood is open for public tours that begin at the DuBois Fort Visitor Center.
