The Staten Island Historical Society at Historic Richmond Town is a unique organization in the New York metropolitan area. Its museum features over 30 original buildings in a semi-rural setting. Its collections and exhibits tell the story of daily life from the pre-revolutionary era up to present day.

We are looking for dedicated and hard working team members.
Through re-created environments, "living history" demonstrations, permanent and changing gallery exhibitions, and special celebrations it chronicles the growth of a new world settlement into a big city suburb – in many ways a microcosm of American life.

Skip the leftovers and enjoy open-hearth fire-cooked Thanksgiving samplings

Thanksgiving TableThe meal that many American families enjoy on Thanksgiving has deep roots in the earliest American food traditions. Historic Richmond Town’s three historic kitchens will be crackling with hardwood fires and open-hearth cooking on Saturday November 25 and Sunday November 26. Historic Interpreters will serve food samples that feature original old-world recipes that include food items that the colonists learned about from Native American culture, and then infused with the spices used in Europe.
