Statement of Significance (as of designation - October 9, 1960):
This historic district consists of five stone houses that reflect the 17th and 18th century Walloon and French Hugenot heritage of the settlers. In 1677, refugees from Flanders and the Lower Rhine purchased the site of New Paltz from the Esopus Indians with "40 kettles, 40 axes, and lots of wampum."
