    The buildings and actors here portray the area through several eras, beginning with a 1690s Dutch house that shows what life was like for the region’s earliest settlers, and going through the 1860s.

    The Staten Island & Governors Island ferries are right next to each other, so from South Ferry, head to SI, and go on an adventure back in time to Historic Richmond Town. It's a trek well worth it.
