Preserving 300 YEARS OF HISTORY & CULTURE on Staten Island.
The Staten Island Historical Society at Historic Richmond Town works to preserve and present centuries of American life by celebrating the ordinary people, from every background, who have worked together to build an extraordinary country. The site and its structures are not bound to a narrow time period and are not limited to a famous event. Our region's history is a platform to share about American growth through the centuries.
“History is not made alone on the battlefield, nor in the deeds of great men, but equally as well in the everyday life of the farmer, artisan, professional man, or housewife”
- Loring McMillen, Founder of Historic Richmond Town.
