Even without tour very pleasant

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.

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

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

I was there for the Uncorked event and love being here. I've been going since I was a little girl and we went on school trips to learn how they did things "in the olden days". Nowadays, Richmondtown still does that but they have great events such as Uncorked where you pay a fee to get in and then can... More

Had a great day at the Uncorked food and wine festival. A great opportunity to try new and old restaurants on Staten Island. We sampled food and wine as we strolled around this beautiful historic site. I would recommend attending all the food festivals at Richmond Town - great day out. Can't wait for the Fair in September.
