The Third County Courthouse is located on Center Street at the head of Court Place. It was built in 1837 on this site, replacing earlier courthouse buildings that had been located on other sites nearby.

Standing on one of the highest points in Richmond, this imposing Greek Revival building was designed to both reflect and inspire civic power and pride. The front (north) wall of the structure is built of rough-faced Staten Island trap rock; the other walls are brick.

The architectural form is a center block with a pedimented portico and flanking wings. The portico is supported by four massive Doric columns. It is not known who designed or built the courthouse but it has been suggested that elements such as the cupola (bell tower) may relate to the work of Abraham P. Maybie, who is known for the Seaman's Retreat building in Clifton. #historicarchitecture #historicrichmondtown #statenisland #statenislandhistoricalsociety #architecture #greekrevival #nyc #columns#newyorkcity #statenisland #statenislandusa #siny #sinyc #visitstatenisland #iloveny #ispyny #silive #timeoutnewyork #cbsnewyork #nbc4ny #abc7ny #fox5ny @hhtnyc @nycparks @nyculture @visitstatenisland @siadvance #architecturetuesday @archtober

The Judge Jacob Tysen House is located at 355 Fillmore Street on the corner of Tysen Street in Livingston, Staten Island, adjacent to the Snug Harbor Cultural Center. Its original location was on Richmond Terrace, one block away from its present site; it was moved in the 1880s.

Built in 1834, the two-story wood frame features three different architectural styles displaying typical 18th century design, Federal style, and Greek Revival. Judge Jacob Tysen (1773-1848) was a judge, member of Congress from 1826 to 1828, and a New York State Senator from 1828 to 1830.

The tinsmith turns up the sides of a 1/2 sheet waiter tray with a tool called a square pan swedge.

The Education staff at Historic Richmond Town aren’t the only ones who like to dress up in Colonial costume! This photograph, taken on February 22, 1932, shows a group portrait of women and men in Colonial style costumes, standing on the side lawn of the Billiou-Stillwell-Perine House in Dongan Hills, Staten Island. They are standing in front of a horse-drawn vehicle and a man on horseback wearing a tricorn hat. Trees with bare branches are behind them, and a portion of the Billiou-Stillwell-Perine House can be seen on the left. #historicarchitecture #historicrichmondtown #statenisland #statenislandhistoricalsociety #woodworking #costumecollege2018 #nyc #newyorkcity #statenisland #statenislandusa #siny #sinyc #visitstatenisland #iloveny #ispyny #silive #timeoutnewyork #cbsnewyork #nbc4ny #abc7ny #fox5ny @hhtnyc @nycparks @nyculture @visitstatenisland @siadvance #fashionfriday #reenacting #begonepeasants

This house, known locally as the Basket Maker’s house, was built ca. 1810.  It is a simple, one and one-half story wood frame building with a rubble stone basement.  Its original location was on Richmond Avenue in New Springville.  It was moved to Historic Richmond Town in 1965.  The architecture is vernacular in style, with Dutch and Flemish influences.

The Guyon-Lake-Tysen House is now located on the north side of Richmond Road between Court Place and St. Patrick's Place. It was moved to Historic Richmond Town in 1962 from its original location in Oakwood, on Tysen's Lane between Mill Road and Hylan Boulevard. 
The Guyon-Lake-Tysen House is unusually large by 18th-century Staten Island standards and represents a substantial, prosperous way of life. It was constructed as a farmhouse and was used as such for most of its history. It was situated in an area of large, fertile farm plots of substantial acreage.

The house is one of few 18th-century gambrel-roof houses surviving on Staten Island today. This once-common form combines Dutch and Franco-Flemish features in a style that was later dubbed "Dutch Colonial." It is exceptional for the survival of its interior wood paneling and detailing. It has two stories plus a cellar and attic, and a kitchen extension to the west. The main portion of the house has dormers and a wide front porch. The kitchen has a wide spring eave on the front, a small porch at the back door, and a small woodshed attached to the west end.

The house was originally built near New Dorp Beach on an 80 acre farm. Joseph Guyon, a farmer of Huguenot descent, constructed the house ca. 1740. His name can still be seen written in the clay daubing above the door of the middle parlor.

Often, there are many aspects of building restoration that go unnoticed. On a rainy summer day one may notice water washing down the gutters and downspouts of the beautifully restored period structures at Historic Richmond Town’s Main Village site.

The General Store, located at its original site on Court Place, is attached to the rear of the Stephens-Black House. It is a rectangular structure of one story with an attic. It was constructed in stages beginning ca. 1840, but most of the structure was demolished in the 1940s. It was restored and reconstructed by Historic Richmond Town in 1964.

The store was built as part of the Stephens-Black House, the home of merchant Stephen Dover Stephens, his wife Elizabeth Johnson Stephens and their five children. The store was a popular gathering spot. The village of Richmond was a bustling place, particularly on trial days, and the store was a place for neighbors to meet and catch up on the news of the day. It also served as the village post office. Stephens offered a wide variety of goods for purchase, including flour ground at nearby Geib's Mill, spices, muslin and ribbon, household goods, nails, and turpentine.

In 1870, the Stephens family sold the house and store to Mary Black, who moved to Staten Island from Manhattan with her husband Joseph and their family. The Blacks had twelve children living with them in 1870; they also had one domestic servant and one worker in the store. Their oldest son, James, probably headed the store for a time during the 1870s, before possibly departing Staten Island. Parents Mary and Joseph Black both died around 1876. Their eldest daughter, Victorine, married and left the household, while her sisters Josephine, Sarah, and Mary Black successfully operated the store and post office from around 1880 to 1920.#historicarchitecture #historicrichmondtown #statenisland #statenislandhistoricalsociety #woodworking #carpentry #coopers #tin #tinsmithing #blacksmithing #metalwork #nyc #newyorkcity #statenisland #statenislandusa #siny #sinyc #visitstatenisland #iloveny #ispyny #silive #timeoutnewyork #cbsnewyork #nbc4ny #abc7ny #fox5ny @hhtnyc @nycparks @nyculture @visitstatenisland @siadvance #architecturetuesday

Their eldest daughter, Victorine, married and left the household, while her sisters Josephine, Sarah, and Mary Black successfully operated the store and post office from around 1880 to 1920.#historicarchitecture  #historicrichmondtown  #statenisland  #statenislandhistoricalsociety  #woodworking  #carpentry  #coopers  #tin  #tinsmithing  #blacksmithing  #metalwork  #nyc  #newyorkcity  #statenisland  #statenislandusa  #siny  #sinyc  #visitstatenisland  #iloveny  #ispyny  #silive  #timeoutnewyork  #cbsnewyork  #nbc4ny  #abc7ny  #fox5ny  @hhtnyc @nycparks @nyculture @visitstatenisland @siadvance #architecturetuesday

An intimate lecture on a rainy summer Saturday discusses the life and work of 19th century photojournalist Jacob Riis. Jacob Riis’ extensive work photographing daily life in and around the often overcrowded tenements that once lined the streets of the Lower East Side of Manhattan, helped to bring awareness to the living conditions of the industrious immigrant poor. #tenementlove #tenementlife #tenementmuseum @thetenementmuseum @statenislandoutloud #historicrichmondtown #statenisland #statenislandhistoricalsociety #nyc #HRTown #restoration #historicpreservation

The blacksmith at Historic Richmond Town works with his apprentices as they prepare coke in order to light the forge. Coke is a semi-processed bituminous coal that has already had most of the impurities removed. It was sometimes used instead of coal because it does not produce a harsh smoke, and it burns hotter.

Interior of the Tin Shop, originally the Colon Store. Although the exact date of construction is unknown, the building which now serves as Historic Richmond Town’s functioning Tinsmith’s Shop was originally built sometime in the 1840’s and was moved twice before finding its permanent home at HRTown’s Main Village site. #thisplacematters #mysummerhousenyc #historicrichmondtown #historicarchitecture #statenisland #statenislandhistoricalsociety #nyc #HRTown #restoration #historicpreservation

Historic Richmond Town presents a new exhibit showcasing a lost medium of period advertising-historic broadsides! This exhibition features examples of printed broadsides in Historic Richmond Town’s collection. Broadsides were a common form of communication in the 1700s and 1800s, and their use included advertising products and businesses, publicizing upcoming events, promoting political campaigns, and notifying the public of important news. Today, these historic broadsides give us valuable insights into daily life and notable events in Staten Island’s past.  Look for these artifacts in the historic County Clerk’s and Surrogate’s Office, now the Historical Museum! #thisplacematters #mysummerhousenyc #historicrichmondtown #historicarchitecture #statenisland #statenislandhistoricalsociety #nyc #HRTown #restoration #historicpreservation

The houses and shops of Historic Richmond Town are representative of more than three hundred years of New York City history, culture and architecture. There is nothing more indicative of centuries past than the low sloping spring eaves of an old Dutch farmhouse or the strong Greek Revival columns supporting the portico of a fine townhome.

The carpenter creates a door using frame and panel construction. The door will then be set into a hanging cabinet. Setting a door this way will allow the wood to expand and contract with changing weather without any damage to the wood. Many doors across the village are constructed using a frame and panel design, including the front and back doors of the carpenter shop. #historicarchitecture #historicrichmondtown #statenisland #statenislandhistoricalsociety #woodworking #carpentry #coopers #nyc #newyorkcity #statenisland #statenislandusa #siny #sinyc #visitstatenisland #iloveny #ispyny #silive #timeoutnewyork #cbsnewyork #nbc4ny #abc7ny #fox5ny @hhtnyc @nycparks @nyculture @visitstatenisland @siadvance #architecturetuesday

For many families, watching a fireworks display is a part of their Independence Day tradition. Things weren’t that different in the 19th century! Below is a page from the account ledger recorded by the owners of Historic Richmond Town’s Stephens-Black General Store. It shows a Richmond Town resident, Reverend Yocom, purchasing firecrackers on July 3, 1880!

Rain and wind can’t stop progress! Preservation work is continuing at the historic Guyon Tavern today, ensuring that the site is secured and supported ahead of its scheduled mid-summer complete restoration. All work, both interior and exterior, is to be completed by September. #historicrichmondtown #historicarchitecture #preservation #restoration #statenisland #statenislandhistoricalsociety #nyc #HRTown #restoration #historicpreservation

The New Dorp Railroad Station was built in 1889 and was originally located near Rose Avenue and 6th Street (now New Dorp Plaza). It is a 1 and 1/2 story structure with a single rectangular room. The roof once had large eaves which created a porch around the building that served as a waiting platform. The architecture shows elements of the Queen Ann style as well as the Stick style. Picturesque details include applied wood boards and brackets, double doors, and windows that contain multi-colored glass. #historicrichmondtown #historicarchitecture #statenisland #statenislandhistoricalsociety #nyc #HRTown #restoration #historicpreservation

This photograph was taken about 1907. It has been identified as the last known photograph of Richmond post #524 of the GAR, which was located on Staten Island. The GAR, or Grand Army of the Republic, was a fraternal organization made up of Union Veterans of the American Civil War. Historic Richmond Town wishes you a safe and thoughtful Memorial Day weekend! #civilwar #veterans #civilwarveterans #historicrichmondtown #historicarchitecture #statenisland #statenislandhistoricalsociety #nyc #HRTown #restoration #historicpreservation

This women’s straw bonnet was made around 1824. It belonged to Joanna Simonson of Staten Island. It is constructed of natural straw with a very wide flaring brim. It has a deep crown and a straw bavolet at back. It is trimmed with cream silk ribbon and green silk bias cut fabric. #fashion #victorian #historicrichmondtown #statenisland #statenislandhistoricalsociety #fashion
