Historic Stone House Days Festival in Hurley!


Cover Pic - Guard HouseEach year on the second Saturday in July, some of America’s oldest stone houses —all private homes— are opened to the public. This year, several of the 200–300-year old homes in the old Dutch village of Hurley, settled 350 years ago, will be open for your enjoyment. The time you spend in each house is at your discretion.



With ten ancient stone houses all within a quarter mile, Hurley’s entire Main Street is listed on the National Registry of Historic Places.  There will be a Colonial Militia demonstration, live music, food and fun for the whole family during this once-a-year opportunity to actually “step into history” and enter these precious historic treasures.


Where: Hurley (Ulster County)

When:  Saturday, July 13, 2013

When: 10 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. (Houses close promptly at 4)

About "Big Chuck"

Hi folks, this is "Big Chuck" here. I love Upstate New York! I have written several books about the region, do a lot of public speaking around the state, am an award-winning radio broadcaster (since 1989), write a bi-monthly newspaper column and give walking tours of Cooperstown, N.Y. Yes, I do keep busy! I hope we can share some Upstate stories on this blog! If you would like to take a look at my series of Upstate New York books visit www.upstatenewyorkbooks.vpweb.com
