The Town of Deerpark Museum, or the Huguenot Schoolhouse is a historic house in Huguenot village in the state of New York. Built in 1863 in Greek Revival architecture, this place was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1997 and is one of the few structures in the region to be classified as a historic place. Currently, the house is a local history museum and also displays some fine art prints.
This reconstructed stockade settlement serves as a museum of Colonial history. It was originally the site of a group of pioneers who moved into the Upper Delaware Valley area in 1754. In season, there are demonstrations given by actors dressed in period costume, with such old-time crafts as candle making and woodworking highlighted. There are also daily musket and cannon firings, and special programs are offered for children. Group tours are available.
