In the focal point of Staten Island, this settlement of in excess of 30 structures is solidified in golden, some portion of a 100-section of land protection venture kept up by the volunteer Staten Island Historical Society. Start in the court, directly over the welcome work area where you purchase a ticket. A subsequent historical center structure has shows delineating Richmond’s beginnings as a 1690s Dutch people group.
Joining a visit (2 pm weekdays, 1:30 pm and 3 pm ends of the week) significantly lights up the experience: docents utilize large corroded keys to open different structures, managing a brief look at an old general store and living quarters wearing seventeenth, eighteenth and nineteenth-century styles. A feature of the visit is two-story oak Voorlezer’s House, the most established previous schoolroom in the US.
The site is around a little ways from the ship terminal by S74 transport. Check the site for extraordinary occasions, similar to the mid-year ‘open town’ displaying hundreds of years old specialties, and a Harvest Festival (with pumpkin picking) in October.
