Historic Richmond Town

. Description:  Staten Island saw Dutch, English, and French settlers, British troops in the revolution,  and early suburban development. This was the former County Seat, and restoration was begun with the conversion of the 1848 County Clerk's and Surrogate's Office to a museum.  Other buildings were restored on site or moved from elsewhere.
