A permanent exhibition celebrating the community's maritime heritage.

Located on the southermost point of New York, Tottenville's coastal environment was at the center of its rich maritime history. The surrounding waterways provided economic and social benefits, and the area became a natural location for bustling shipbuilding and repair yards. The Rutan-Becket House stands as a testament to this industry. The exhibition highlights both the economic and social use of the waterfront from the mid-19th century through the 20th century with photographs, artifacts, and artwork.

The exhibition is open by appointment.
