The Tottenville Historical Society has a remarkable collection of art, maps, ephemera, photographs, postcards, artifacts, as well as business, organizational, family and oral histories.
Our Artifacts Collection includes bottles, bricks, trophies, terra cotta, textiles, and some very unique and unusual items. Our Library contains an extensive selection of Staten Island history books, pamphlets, serials, and newspapers. Many of the items in our collections are donated by individuals and families.
The process by which we receive, catalog and preserve them is defined in our Collections Management Policy .
We urge you to consider donating items of historical significance to our archival collections for long-term care. These artifacts, heirlooms, documents and images are important! They embody the fabric of our heritage, our history, and the spirit of our town and should be preserved for future generations.
