From Farm to City: Staten Island 1661-2012

The Staten Island Museum will present From Farm to City,  the local legacy exhibit inspired by the Museum of the City of New York’s current exhibition, From Farm to City: Staten Island 1661-2012, which was a co-presentation of the Museum of the City of New York, Staten Island Historical Society at Historic Richmond Town, and the Staten Island Museum.

Opening in the fall of 2014, this iteration will be a graphic and digital history timeline of the Island reaching back to the earliest inhabitants – the Lenape Indians – and proceed forward into the modern age with subjects such as notable individuals, occurrences, communities, architecture, industry, and politics.
