Raising the Roof!

Artist Scott LoBaido Paints American Home


On June 9th, 2013, members of the community came to celebrate one of the most storied homes in New York. With help from the community we have reached our target to raise $25,000 for the Billiou-Stillwell-Perine House Roof Restoration. This campaign helped us match the $25,000 grant from the Richmond County Savings Foundation. The $50,000 allows us to begin the first phase of restoring this landmark home that will begin in Spring 2014.

This print celebrates the Island's oldest home and immortalizes three families that lived in the home

This movement began when members of the community came together and decided to raise funds to preserve the oldest house on Staten Island. This grassroots effort grew to involve friends, associations, and organizations - including descendants of the original families who lived in the home.

The Billiou-Stillwell-Perine House is a unique part of Historic Richmond Town that represents over 350 years of American history. It celebrates the dedication of a free people who used their liberty to build an extraordinary country. The museum is restoring this home so that future generations can appreciate its story.

Help us to continue to share the stories of ordinary people from every background who worked hard every day to build this extraordinary country. Our children and grandchildren need to hear these true tales.
