Considering FDR’s wartime visit to Historic Huguenot Street, HHS Director of Strategy & Historic Interpretation Thomas Weikel will reflect on the notion that how a group remembers their past affects their present. President Roosevelt’s visit to New Paltz on the surface was simple - to see the stone houses that remain from the original settlement his Huguenot ancestors founded generations before. However, the connection to his past shaped his world view and influenced the decisions he made as President.
