Meet the New Executive Director,
Tracy Doolittle McNally
While Attending an Evocative
Fine Art Photography Exhibit by

Robert Goldwitz 


An 11th generation descendant of the Huguenot founders of New Paltz, TRACY has an inherent passion for Historic Huguenot Street's mission.  "Ms. McNally has a proven track record professionally in both corporate and non-profit organizations with strong expertise in marketing, development, special events, public relations, and financial management" says HHS Board Chair Mary Etta Schneider.  Tracy has been instrumental in the transformation of a number of organizations through strategic analysis, long- range planning, and execution.  She has a B.A. from St. Lawrence University and an MBA from SUNY New Paltz School of Business.  Most recently Tracy was head of the Greene County Chamber of Commerce and was widely recognized as Greene County's top businesswoman.  When asked what she thought might be the greatest opportunity in her new position, Tracy stated, "I look forward to exploring new ways of making our rich history relevant and exciting for our members and visitors."  She goes on to say, "Many people think Historic Huguenot Street is about Stone Houses and a quiet street.  But it is so much more than that.  We need to continue to make the exciting stories, extensive archives and valuable collections come alive in unique ways.  I look forward to working with the Board in accomplishing this."         


ROBERT Goldwitz captures images at opportune instants that speak to the heart of his subject. With a keen eye for composition, light and detail, Rob's subjects range from the purely realistic to the evocatively abstract. An award-winning photographer, Goldwitz has been featured in one-man and group shows in New York City, Key West and elsewhere. 


Friday, September 23, 5:30-7:30pm in the DuBois Fort Visitor Center. Light refreshments will be served.
