The Days of King Louis and Queen Anne
April 4 @ 11:00 am - April 5 @ 3:00 pm
At Locust Lawn, only a few miles away from Huguenot Street on Route 32 in New Paltz, Locust Lawn’s annual living history event showcases the British and French military in the very early 18th Century. While New York was a British colony at this time, the French controlled Canada, immediately to the north. The ongoing conflict between the British and French surfaced a number of times in the 18th Century, on the European continent and in the North American colonies.
Locust Lawn’s annual living history event showcases many aspects of life circa 1700. Crafts, military drills, foodways, and games – something for everyone.
Locust Lawn is the name given to the Colonel Josiah Hasbrouck House, built in 1815.
