Executive Director, Historic Huguenot Street
New Paltz, NY

 

Historic Huguenot Street (HHS) seeks an Executive Director to provide dynamic leadership and to direct the planning, organization, collections, programming, fundraising, staffing, and operations of this 10-acre National Historic Landmark District. The site includes a Visitor Center, seven historic stone houses, a reconstructed 1717 Huguenot church, eight other properties, exhibit and program spaces, archaeological sites, and a burial ground that dates to the very first Huguenot settlers in New York State.

Followers of theologian John Calvin, fleeing religious persecution in northern France, purchased 40,000 acres of land from the Munsee Native Americans in 1677. The Huguenot's first settlement, built with the contribution of enslaved Africans, was located on the banks of the picturesque Wallkill River in the Mid-Hudson Valley of New York. The Huguenot farm community soon integrated with Dutch inhabitants, and grew and prospered to become the vibrant town of New Paltz, NY.

Since then, Historic Huguenot Street has grown into an innovative museum, chartered as an educational corporation by the State of New York, and dedicated to protecting the historic buildings, conserving an important collection of artifacts and manuscripts, and promoting the stories of Native American, enslaved African, and European families from the seventeenth century to today. It is an exciting moment at Historic Huguenot Street as the organization is poised to become a progressive and provocative model for the renaissance of historic sites and museums across the country.
