Historic Richmond Town is an experience especially when they have Old Home Day to see he inside of the buildings and how they dressed, cooked and lived. Also I visit when they have their annual flea market but especially it is nice when they have the Richmond County Fair - good food and good entertainment, fun things for kids to... More

I wanted to love it. Based on the website and some recent reviews, I expected something like Sturbridge Village or Historic Deerfield. What we found was a very sad collection of buildings in various stages of disrepair. We first noticed the complete lack of cleaning and basic maintenace resulting in cobwebs and dust everywhere and a huge wasp nest growing... More

There were 6 in our group but only two from Staten Island. Friends were visiting and wanted to see Old Richmond Town. The tour guide was very informative and we visited several old buildings including the oldest school house. Inexpensive and very interesting.

Historic Richmond Town is a living history museum with a collection of buildings that represents life as it was 200 years ago. Some of the buildings have been relocated here from elsewhere but are still historically accurate for the period. Historic Richmond Town also hosts a variety of events throughout the year such as Fairs, Yankee Peddler day, Flea markets,... More

This place is great! We took the Staten Island Ferry over to Staten Island and then the S74 bus straight at the terminal. bus ride was about 45 minutes and well worth it. The town of Richmond surrounds the old town and they have volunteers running the town. Children were there as volunteers as it was the holiday. They were... More

Can walk through at all hours and grounds are well kept. Hidden history everywhere, you can find things on your own but the tours are amazing.

She has the keys and we went in and toured the houses . My favorite was the old tavern , the country store. There is a small museum which... More

The town itself has some amazing buildings from earlier times on Staten Island. It is right in the middle of an active and contemporary Richmond Town. I was there to see the home built by my ancestors in 1720. That house was actually moved to this site to preserve fit from destruction as a highway was built. The others were... More
