New! St. Paul’s – Mud Lane Historic District

With John Kilcullen

[In-person tour] MAS teams up with the Preservation League of Staten Island for a spring walking tour of this late 19th/ early 20th century neighborhood. The origins of Stapleton village date to 1833 when William J. Staples and Minthorne Tompkins, son of the New York State governor and later U.S. Vice President Daniel D. Tompkins (who established the adjoining town of Tompkinsville) purchased land from Cornelius Vanderbilt and laid out the village streets. From the beginning the village had a focus and orientation to the waterfront. The tour will highlight the many varied and wonderful architectural styles that now comprise this historic district. Many of the original house owners (and architects) worked in Stapleton and the surrounding neighborhoods.

Registration is now closed.
