This is not some reconstruction of colonial America. These are the real homes built by 17th century Huguenot settlers, among the oldest in the U.S. The street is so lovely you can just enjoy a pleasant stroll for free any time of day, any season, which as a resident of the area is what I do several times a year. During the warmer half of the year you can also take a tour. As wonderful as I find the street, however, I must admit that children often find the tours too long and tedious.
