About the event

Wappingers Falls Historic costumed characters at Mesier Homestead!

As part of New York State’s Path Through History, we will be offering a FREE interactive costumed event on Sunday, September 24th.  This is a unique opportunity to discover both the history of the Homestead and the personal stories of local historic figures. While visiting the rooms of the Mesier Homestead, discover the Revolutionary War patriotism of Nicholas Brower from his wife, Sarah Brower; the influence of the Mesier family from Maria Mesier; learn about Irving Grinnell, founder of the Grinnell Library from his niece Edith Bowdoin; and hear stories from Rush Hotel owner George Rush

As you come up the walk to the Homestead, you may discover a local knitting group spinning yard on the front porch, just as ladies did long ago.  It's all part of our local history, waiting to be discovered at the Mesier Homestead! 

The character program takes place at 1:00pm. 2:00pm and 3:00pm.   There is no charge for admission, however, donations are gratefully accepted.
