Historian Pat Salmon Presents "Institutionalized on Staten Island"

Pat Salmon.jpg

Pat Salmon returns to present a lecture about the history of Staten Island's institutions.  During the eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries Staten Island was viewed as a healthy environment for the ill and those who could not fend for themselves. For this, and other reasons, facilities such as the Quarantine Station, Seaman’s Retreat, “Old Ladies’ Home,” Richmond County Almshouse (Farm Colony), Sailors’ Snug Harbor, Mount Loretto and others were established. Discover the behind the scene histories of these locations!  

It costs $5 to attend this lecture.  You can pay at the door.  We hope to see you there!
