The Huguenot settlement in New Paltz was founded in 1677 on land purchased from the Munsee. Here’s a bit of native American history in the region.

    These are wonderful doors. I’ve been to New Paltz (many years ago) but I didn’t know the history.

    Oh, way cool-looking history-rich place! Thanks for the tip. Duly noted for my next trip into that part of New York. At this point, lord only knows when that may even be possible.

    Whenever I see a stone house I always imagine 18inch walls that keeps everything out.. hot, cold. 😊 I wonder if anyone builds like that anymore😊. Nice post!!

      I like the idea of a thickly insulated home. Very green.

        Yes. I’ve read that Hemingway’s old house on Key West has walls that thick and has with stood all those hurricanes!!
