Lecture Series, Week 6 * Turrets, Towers, and More: The Historic Landmarks of Staten Island

Week 6 of The History of Staten Island – Part 2, a seven-session lecture series with Patricia M. Salmon at the Noble Maritime Collection.* 

Turrets, Towers, and More: The Historic Landmarks of Staten Island - Many believe that most of the built environment of Staten Island has been destroyed. Actually, a surprising number of breath-taking structures have survived. To celebrate our remaining treasures, we will look at the history of landmarking on Staten Island, while examining such locales as the Saint George/New Brighton and Saint Paul’s Avenue-Stapleton Heights Historic Districts. Individual structures at Sandy Ground, along with Crimson Beech, the Pendleton Cottage, the Dr. Samuel M. Elliott House, the Gustave Mayer House, the Seguine Mansion, and the Seguine-Manee House will also be discussed.

Presentations will include a PowerPoint, lecture, video clips, question and answer periods, sources for future research by participants, handouts, and guest speakers.

Individual sessions $10 each; museum members $9 each

*Please note that participation in The History of Staten Island Part 1 is not a requirement for this series.
