HISTORIC RICHMOND TOWN

HISTORIC RICHMOND TOWN, a "historic village and museum complex" devoted to Staten Island's "bygone era," provides "trained costumed interpreters," bonnet-clad women and aproned men, to guide guests in slate writing and wood chopping. While visitors idle in a shoemaker's house, a reconstructed sawmill, and a tinsmith shop, teens possessing a "serious interest" in millinery or fireplace cooking can participate in the "apprentice program" of their choice.
