Mesier Homestead Historic Site in Wappingers Falls Open for Tours

March 20 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

The 1741 Mesier Homestead in Wappingers Falls is open for tours. Guided tours are led by volunteers from the Wappingers Historical Society. Tours will be offered beginning at 1:00pm. Last tour is at 3:00pm. Advanced ticket purchase is highly recommended due to limited tour size. Tickets can be purchased on our website. Walk-ins will be accommodated if space is available. The building is heated/air conditioned both upstairs and downstairs.

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 our collection of Native American artifacts.
The Homestead is located at 2 Spring Street Wappingers Falls. Tickets are $10 for adults, $7 for seniors, $5 for children age 7-18. Under 7 free. Information and reservations for all of our tours can be found at https://www.wappingershistoricalsociety.org/upcoming-events or email tours@wappingershistorical.org or call 845-632-1281.
