"Tottenville: The Town the Oyster Built"


From the flier for an upcoming program on March 19, 2009 at 4:00PM at the Tottenville Branch Library:

A Celebration of the History of Tottenville

The Tottenville Historical Society and the Tottenville Branch Library invite you to celebrate the arrival of the new book, Tottenville: The Town the Oyster Built by Barnett Shepherd. “Scrupulously researched but lively vivid…” writes Christopher Gray of the New York Times. And Brian J. Laline, Editor, Staten Island Advance adds “Tottenville, Staten Island. A place of rich history, historical significance–and your last stop before leaving the shores of the State of New York…Travel with him around this southernmost town in New York State…It’s truly a unique story of a tiny slice of America.”

The book is published by the Tottenville Historical Society and the Preservation League of Staten Island.

If you can't come to the program and are interested in the book, you can contact the Tottenville Historical Society at or at PO Box 70185, Staten Island, NY 10307-0185.
