Today we will be breaking down all the history about the Staten Island neighborhood, Annadale. This neighborhood is home to the South Shore and the zip codes 10309 and 10312. The neighborhood was given its current name around 1860, and it is called after Anna Seguine, a French Huguenot ancestor who was among the South Shore's first residents; Spanish Camp, also known as the Spanish Colony, was established in 1929 by emigrants from Spain who bought property near the Annadale shoreline. At first, cottages were constructed there, and then shelters. Anna Seguine is the reasoning for the naming of Annadale, Huguenot, Princes Bay and even the street Seguine Avenue.

In the past, Annadale had a lot of forest, but during the last three decades of the 20th century, a lot of it was removed to make way for new houses. The Blue Heron Park Preserve, a 222-acre wildlife refuge that was once a municipal park in the middle of the neighborhood, now contains ponds, marshes, and tiny waterways that drain into Raritan Bay. Nowadays, Arden Heights, a section of Annadale in the northwest, is frequently thought of as a distinct community. Additionally, Southeast Annadale has a distinct character from the rest of the community. Blue Heron Park is most frequently connected to this area of Annadale.
