Historic Richmond Town’s Main Village site comes alive with the sights, sounds, tastes, and smells of New York City’s rural past!

Visit skilled artisans as they practice their trade, tour the restored interiors of period homes, take part in civic life, and browse working shops and functioning open hearth kitchens.

Be a part of your community past, present, and future! The village will be open all summer long! Visit with costumed living historians inside the site’s historic structures on Mondays through Friday from noon to 5:00 p.m., and on Saturdays and Sundays from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.!

Experience the everyday lives of artisans, farmers, business owners, and families who lived and worked on Staten Island in the 18th, 19th, and early 20th centuries.

Historic Richmond Town’s Main Village site is home to 45 historic structures on nearly 100 acres of beautiful parkland. The site is open to the public daily. Walk the grounds, or have a family picnic! Guided tours of the restored structures are offered Monday through Sunday.

Each ticket sold aids in the ongoing efforts in preservation, restoration and education conducted by the Staten Island Historical Society at Historic Richmond Town.
