Historic Richmond Town, Staten Island

Historic Richmond Town (HRT) covers over 100 acres of land in Staten Island and includes over 30 historic buildings from the late 17th to early 20th century.

In the summer of 2011, an emergency preservation grant of $2,500 was approved to fund the services of Easton Architects for prioritizing necessary restoration work on several properties at HRT, ranging from a leaking roof to termite-eaten beams. Her report set forth both work that HRT’s facilities’ staff could undertake and other work which would require a paid, skilled carpenter. A second emergency grant of $15,000 was used to pay Island Housewrights Corporation, a restoration carpentry firm, to replace the cedar shake roof of the Guyon Store & Tavern and to carry out brick and roof repairs on the Third County Courthouse building.

This work was completed at the end of 2011.
