NEW PALTZ – Historic Huguenot
Street has been awarded a planning grant from the New York State Council
on the Arts to prepare for a year of woman’s history-centered programming
at the 10-acre National Historic Landmark District in the Village of New

Programs being planned for 2020 include artistic and innovative interpretations
of local women’s history as well as educational sessions that address
current issues related to women’s rights.

“Each year, we host dozens of programs including community favorites
like Cider Market, Trick-or-Treat, Haunted Huguenot Street and A Holiday
on Huguenot Street; but developing and planning new programs that are
particularly relevant to today, takes time. And this grant gives us that
time,” said Kara Gaffken, director or public programming.

Historic Huguenot Street did not specify the amount of the grant.
