Historic Richmond Town Guided Tours

Map & Directions 441 Clarke Ave.
Staten Island, NY 10306


Village Voice's Description

Historic Richmond Town, a "historic village and museum complex" devoted to Staten Island's "bygone era," provides "trained costumed interpreters," bonnet-clad women and aproned men, to guide guests in slate writing and wood chopping. While visitors idle in a shoemaker's house, a reconstructed sawmill, and a tinsmith shop, teens possessing a "serious interest" in millinery or fireplace cooking can participate in the "apprentice program" of their choice.

    Get a taste of New York’s early history on a trip to Staten Island’s historic village. A free shuttle will pick you up in the parking lot and drop you off at Decker Farm! Powered by ParentsConnect.com

  • NYC Parks on 10/10/13

    The buildings and actors here portray the area through several eras, beginning with a 1690s Dutch house that shows what life was like for the region’s earliest settlers, and going through the 1860s.

  • Time Out New York on 06/13/13

    Find respite from modern distractions at this quaint, sleepy village. The time capsule of 30 restored structures from the 17th to early 20th centuries was initiated by Depression-era preservationists.

  • Time Out New York on 06/27/13

    The preserved village plays host to costumed blacksmiths, shoemakers and tinsmiths as well as the Voorlezer’s House, the oldest wooden elementary schoolhouse still standing in America.

  • Gerard on 08/28/11

    This is a collection of colonial houses including the one of the oldest schoolhouses in America. Each year in September it's the Richmond County Fair with adorable pig races!
