TypeAttraction
CategoryHistoric Site
DescriptionHistoric Richmond Town is New York City’s living history village and museum complex. Visitors can explore the diversity of the American experience, through the lives of ordinary people, who struggled, survived and thrived from the colonial period to the present.

When you visit you'll discover that Historic Richmond Town rests on over 100 acres and encompasses four sites, include NYC's oldest continuously operating farm. The main village is located in the heart of Richmond County and occupies almost 50 acres featuring over 30 original historic structures, including homes and commercial and civic buildings, as well as a historical museum. We stress "original" because unlike many other museums R-Town is not reconstructed or rebuilt. It's the real thing. Three additional sites include one of the oldest homes in the country, still standing on its original location for almost 350 years, and our 11 acre organic farm.

We recommend you come early and plan to stay for awhile. A visit to Historic Richmond Town is a family outing that provides an opportunity for everyone to experience the domestic, commercial and civic activities that supported families and community for more than 300 years.

Visitors can walk through the former county seat of Richmond, see historically furnished interiors and explore museum exhibits. Staff and volunteers provide guided tours and demonstrate the daily activities of early Staten Islanders on a seasonal, scheduled basis. The museum also presents and host over one hundred events and special programs throughout the year. Please browse our calendar to plan your visit. www.HistoricRichmondTown.org

Established in 1958, Historic Richmond Town is a joint project of the Staten Island Historical Society, an independent nonprofit cultural organization, and the City of New York, which owns a portion of the land and structures. The City supports part of the museum's operations with public funds from the Department of Cultural Affairs and the New York City Council.
