A lovely and quiet street where colonists from long ago settled. Some nicely built and sweet houses. Nothing flashy but calm and lovely.

Because we could not get into the buildings, we did not get the full flavor of the visit. There was some information at the visitor center, but after that all I can say is the visit had potential.

The ghost tour was cool, not scary though, it was more of an re-enactment of life in the 1700’s in the area. The acting was great and the architecture beautiful.

What a beautiful way to spend a Saturday! The houses are well-preserved and staged so that you can immerse yourself in the world of the Huguenots. We went the day of Applestock too so it was a lovely day all around. Our tour guide Liz...More

Huguenot Street is always open. You might not get into some of the old stone houses but you certainly can view them from the outside. There are also old headstones that are visible in a small cemetery on the street.
