During these interpreter-led themed tours, costumed living-historians guide the visitor through furnished, period interiors of restored historic structures.  The choice of buildings and interpretation are based on the theme of the day.

Experience the immersive sights, sounds, tastes, and aromas of the past as history comes alive through costumed interpreters and diverse public programs.  

  • Stroll period streets and visit working shops and restored homes. 

  • Relive the American farm experience with the open-hearth of an early 19th century kitchen. 

  • Walk through the Third County Courthouse or sit at the bar in the historic Guyon Tavern. You will never believe you are still in New York City. 

  • Browse the shelves of a nearly two-century old general store.  

  • Discover where household items and furnishings come from, and how they are made, while discussing production and industry with masters of the historic trades.
