Home and neighborhood colonials: Going back in time

There are many Colonial houses and neighborhoods in New York. Each one gives a different look into life in the 17th and 18th centuries. Historic Richmond Town on Staten Island is one of the most interesting places to visit because it has preserved homes and buildings that let tourists walk through living history. In the same way, the Morris-Jumel Mansion in Manhattan, which is the oldest house in the borough, shows how New York was before the Revolutionary War through its well-preserved building and interiors.

You can learn about the past through historical societies and tours.

The New York Historical Society and other local preservation groups are very important for keeping the area's Colonial history alive and showing it off. They have a lot of useful things, like archives and training programs, and they often have tours that bring history to life. These tours, which are led by knowledgeable people, can take you through historic areas, showing you important architectural features and telling you about the people who lived in these homes in the past.

Important Landmarks: Places You Have to See

There are many important Colonial sites in New York, but the Van Cortlandt House Museum in the Bronx stands out. It is the oldest house in the borough and is now a museum that shows how people lived in the colonial era. The Kingsland Homestead is home to the Queens Historical Society, which is another great place to visit. They tell stories about the area's Colonial history and how it has changed over the years.
