Historic Richmond Town is New York City’s living history and museum complex. Visitors can explore the diversity of the American experience, through the lives of ordinary people, who struggled, survived and thrived from the colonial period to the present.
When you visit you'll discover that Historic Richmond Town rests on over 100 acres and encompasses four sites, include NYC's oldest continuously operating farm.
The main village is located in the heart of Richmond County and occupies almost 50 acres featuring over 30 original historic structures, including homes and commercial and civic buildings, as well as a historical museum. We stress "original" because unlike many other museums Richmond Town is not reconstructed or rebuilt. It's the real thing. Three additional sites include one of the oldest homes in the country, still standing on its original location for almost 350 years, and our 11 acre family style farm.
