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.
