      1741 Mesier Homestead and Museum Historic Site Open for Guided Tours

      During this time of social distancing, we are very pleased to offer you an opportunity to tour the Mesier Homestead privately, in your own group of no more than 4 people from the same "household". Our SIgnature Experience tours allow you to focus on items and topics that are of interest to you. You will able to converse with the guide, ask questions, take your time looking at the exhibits. For example, depending on your group's interest, we can focus on Victorian lifestyle, textiles, Presidential connections to the Wappinger area, or you can request the youth tour designed to engage and interact with young people, helping them to discover what life was like in times long ago. Simply put, our Signature Experience tour allows you to customize your visit with us, taking the time to explore what is of interest to you.

      The Mesier Homestead is now open to private tours. Initially, one tour per day will be offered Tuesday - Friday, anytime between 10:30am - 4pm. This schedule will expand as we fine-tune this new experience. Please complete the RSVP registration form with your preferred days and times and we will get in touch with you to confirm. We ask that reservations be made at least 48 hours in advance. Only confirmed reservations will be honored. Unfortunately, we cannot accomodate walk-ins at this time. Donations for this tour experience are very welcome and gratefully accepted; the suggested donation is $5 per person.

      Important COVID19 safety guidelines:

      To care for the health and safety of our staff and visitors, COVID19 safety guidelines will be in place, including: the proper wearing of face masks will be required at all times for all participants over the age of 3 as well as WHS staff (face masks will be available if you need one); completion of brief COVID-related health screening questions at both confirmation of reservation and upon arrival will be required; social distancing between the group and your guide while on tour and in our gift shop. Hand santizer will be available before and after the tour. The tour itself is a "no-touch" tour; handrails, doorknobs and other touch points will be santized between groups.
