Historic Richmond Town


Historic Richmond Town is New York City's open air museum that tells the stories of ordinary Americans who have worked hard for centuries to build an extraordinary country. Situated on over 100 acres of historic parkland and housing over 30 original historic structure and millions of artifacts that date back to the 1600s, Historic Richmond Town is in a unique position to share centuries of American life from the 17th century until today. Currently, fully funded capital projects of over $10,000,000 are underway to enhance the visitors' experience. Executive Director, Ed Wiseman, is an eight time Emmy award winning producer and director whose creative vision has led to new popular special events, programs and storytelling. The museum's attendance has doubled in the past four years. Historic Richmond Town (also know as the Staten Island Historical Society) is a cultural institution of the City of New York in partnership with the Department of Cultural Affairs, Department of Parks and Recreation and Historic House Trust. It is the oldest (1856) and largest cultural institution in the borough of parks.
