Historic Richmond Town is an outdoor history museum. Many of the buildings are original to the site, while others have been relocated from throughout Staten Island. Much of the site is as it would have been in the late 1930’s when the Staten Island Historical Society moved its museum and library to the site and began interpretation of the historic structures. Except as noted below, prior arrangements are not required; however we encourage you to contact us in advance for any assistance that may be needed.
