A step back into the 1800s.

Some of the oldest buildings on Staten Island set up like a town from hundreds of years ago. Nice museum showing some history of Staten Island. Excellent for photographers.

As an active member of Historic Richmond Town, I make several trips to the Tavern for music, and many trips to take visitors on tours. Each visit enlightens not only visitors but also myself. Every season has its own revelations. Spring awakenings, summer BBQ's, Fall pumpkin pickin' and Halloween party and even winter surprises in the Tavern and just keeping... More

I highly recommend Richmond Town to everyone interested in history and historical preservation. You don't have to leave New York City or even Staten Island to see it.

One of Staten Island's unique attractions, Historic Richmondtown features historical buildings that trace the Island's history from the late 17th Century to the mid 20th Century. Have been visiting the site since 1969 and seen it change dramatically with restorations ongoing. My tour group enjoyed a delicious luncheon at Bennett's Cafe.

A great look back into Staten Island's History. I had a fantastic encounter during a visit with a young man who works there. His name is Frank Saulle, very pleasant, well spoken, he had a great passion for his place of work. I recommend attending one of the many events... the BBQ competition, Wine Tasting, Chili Cookoff (my favorite) or... More

I took my kids here about 3 yrs ago and let me say, it is so pretty. I am really big on history, so this was a perfect place to visit. I loved the feeling of being there. It's interesting to know that it was the 1st place on Staten island. The buildings have so much history, that if walls... More
