Tottenville’s Architectural Heritage
The Tottenville Historical Society will discuss the findings of the Tottenville Historic Resource Survey, a study of 250+ of the oldest homes and buildings in the community, including the process of dating them using deeds, maps, and, in many cases, by identification of their distinctive architectural details.
The program will begin with a brief slide presentation showing several unique local homes and buildings, followed by a discussion and a question and answer period.
An announcement of the forthcoming book, Tottenville: the Town the Oyster Built. A Staten Island Community, Its People, Industry and Architecture, will be made.
This program will be at the Tottenville Branch on Thursday, November 29 at 4:00PM.
I saw this slide program in June at the Historical Society’s annual meeting, and it was absolutely wonderful!
