In a time of isolation, quarantine and social distancing, we all have felt a sense of extended cabin fever. This winter, Historic Richmond Town hosts a series of workshops designed to stave off the winter doldrums. 

Join historic interpreters from the Education department for Candle Making Workshops in January.  Learn about the history of lighting and candle making in the 18th and 19th centuries,, and dip your own candles to take home with you!

Workshops are available as group slots at scheduled times. 

Tickets are $50 for a group of up to 6 people. Each group will make 12 taper candles to take home.

The Staten Island Historical Society at Historic Richmond Town works to create opportunities for the public to explore the diversity of the American experience, especially that of Staten Island and its neighboring communities from the colonial period to the present.

We accomplish this by preserving and presenting centuries of American life through the efforts of ordinary people, from every background, who worked to build an extraordinary country.  The site and its structures are not bound to a specific historical event or famous persons.  Our region's history is a platform to share about American growth through the centuries.

To accomplish this the Society:

Operates and interprets Historic Richmond Town, the largest and most
complete historic village in the City of New York - 100 acres and 40 structures

Collects and preserves the materials of everyday life including artifacts,
archives and buildings that tell the story - 60,000 artifacts

Conducts and promotes research based on the historic collection

Shares the collection and knowledge with the public through creative and engaging interpretative programs
