Where family is the story...
in New Paltz, New York
the heart of the Hudson Valley
Whether you’re planning your wedding, a party, a business luncheon or a day-long workshop, Historic Huguenot Street has a number of unique and affordable locations from which to choose that you and your guests will appreciate and remember.
The LeFevre House
Located on Huguenot Street in New Paltz, the LeFevre House recently became available for private events. Situated on the ground floor of this sensitively interpreted stone house is a large parlor with a stone hearth, perfect for a small cocktail party. Over two hundred years of striking family portrait paintings grace the walls, adding charm to an already appealing atmosphere. Folding chairs and tables are available for your use. The LeFevre House Portrait Gallery can be rented year-round.
Crispell Memorial French Church
The French Church, located on Huguenot Street in New Paltz, is a reconstruction of the first stone church in New Paltz, originally built in 1717. This reconstructed church was built in 1972 with funds from the Crispell Family. The structure features high-backed wooden pews and a raised pulpit, with a seating capacity of eighty individuals. It is a uniquely simple and yet appealing structure, with remarkable acoustic clarity. While we receive many inquiries on the availability of the church for weddings, the building is also a museum property and requires a certain amount of care and maintenance. Therefore, we restrict wedding ceremonies at the French Church to twelve weddings between May and October, during the public tour season. We allow unlimited booking from November to April, provided the space is not already reserved. To increase the likelihood of reserving your desired date, we request that prospective couples contact us as much in advance of the wedding as possible.
Deyo Hall Meeting Rooms
Deyo Hall, located on Broadhead Avenue in New Paltz, offers two distinct venues. A large room accommodating up to seventy for receptions, parties, or meetings and seventy for sit-down dinners or workshops is available. Folding chairs and eight-foot rectangular tables are available at no extra charge.
Grounds and Lawns
Our attractively landscaped grounds have views of the stone houses, space for tents or pavilions, and shade from stately trees that have sheltered Huguenot Street for over a century. These picturesque grounds make the perfect setting for wedding receptions, parties and large meetings. There are two sites on the property suitable for this type of event - the front lawn at Deyo Hall for smaller groups, and the large lawn behind the Deyo House for groups of up to 200. Due to a Village of New Paltz noise ordinance, there is a cutoff time of 10:00pm for outdoor events.
A deposit is required to hold all dates.
Special tours of the museum houses of Historic Huguenot Street are available during the season for an additional fee with any rental.
