There is no need to wait until October to enjoy a good ghost story in the Hudson Valley. We are known for our haunted tales. Sleepy Hollow's Headless Horseman, and The Blair Witch Project are both world-famous stories of Hudson Valley Hauntings. We have buildings, historic places, and centuries-old cemeteries that all have a spooky tale or two to tell.

One of the Hudson Valley's most historic places embraces its legends and tales and shares them with you in an entertaining way. Historic Huguenot Street is ready to share its haunted history with you this summer. Every Friday in July you can enjoy Boos and Brews.
