New York City's only historic village is a collection of 28 landmarked buildings in a park-like setting. Visitors can stroll through this open-air museum and experience life from the 17th century until today. You can visit the oldest schoolhouse in the United States, the Voorlezer's House, which dates from 1695, watch a carpenter or tinsmith hone their trade, learn how to make soap, or see the village blacksmith pound out 19th century tools.
Historic Richmond Town offers group overnights, reenactments, workshops and the chance to explore New York City's oldest continuously working farm. Plenty of old fashioned fun awaits you at Historic Richmond Town!
